Welcome to English class!
During the first quarter, we will begin our studies in English 9 by strengthening our close reading and annotation skills through short stories and a classic American essay. You will also begin to write regularly to become accustomed to the requirements of high school-level writing.
AP Literature students will immediately delve into our college-level studies through a "Boot Camp," which will increase your comfort level with poetry, voice, and irony. We will then study the Greek tragedy Oedipus the King, all the while beginning to write analytically in response to these pieces of literature.
