Literature & Composition Honors

This Honors course will cover similar content as English 9 but will move at a much faster pace, cover topics in greater depth, and require more independent reading. All literature is interpreted from a Christian perspective and will be used as a springboard for both critical and creative writing. Students will write many well-developed essays as a foundational skill necessary for future academic writing, applying the vocabulary and grammar skills practiced in class. Requirements include participation and leadership in critical discussions of literature, completion of written literary analysis papers, independent reading, and graded summer reading.

Prerequisite: 93% in English 8 or 90% in English 8 Accelerated. Teacher recommendation required.
