In these courses, students explore short stories, articles, drama, poetry, and non-fiction. Through guided reading experiences, online discussion, writing assignments and responding to reflection questions, students examine the components and structure of each genre. In addition, students conduct web quests, perform research, and develop creative writing projects. Students will improve their expository writing, reading comprehension, and comprehension and synthesis skills.
