JIA English 9A

Course Description:

The first of a two semester sequence introduces students to high school English classes using a genre-based study strategy. Students experience the content of English 9 through readings, journals, vocabulary assessments, quizzes, tests, discussions, projects, presentations, and supplemental multimedia. Students will regularly analyze prose and poetry through writing and summative projects. English 9A introduces students to high school English course expectations. Students begin with a study of narrative, informative, and argumentative styles of writing, while preparing mini-essays. Next, students move into a study of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, in which they create an EP combining musical selections with the plot points of the play. Finally, students engage in the process of independent reading in which they create an artifact representative of the book. A final examination covering types of writing, Romeo and Juliet, SAT-style questions, and essay writing culminates the semester.
