English Language Arts 9-12

Welcome to ELA! This year we will be exploring both informational texts and literature to prepare for the Common Core Learning Standards for ELA and Literacy. We will be using these texts to read closely, find evidence to back up a claim, understand various perspectives, research, make decisions, and form positions on a topic. We will also be writing argumentative, informative, and narrative pieces throughout the year. In addition, you will be responsible for reading one independent book (or set of poems) per quarter and choosing a project to showcase what you have read.
