1st Semester - Reading Enrichment (Read 180)

Reading Enrichment is a reading support course designed to prepare students for the 9th Grade English Language Arts curriculum. This class is designed to support and strengthen student achievement in reading comprehension, writing, and communication skills. We will focus on various types of literacy this semester, specifically enabled by the READ 180 program, while incorporating technology and literature to enhance student learning and preparation for high school careers. The learning goals for this course are:

      • to increase student fluency and lexile levels.
      • to improve typing skills and use technology more efficiently.
      • to produce writing that is clear, coherent, effective, and useful in all aspects of school and life.
2nd Semester - 9th Grade Literature
9th grade Literature is an exciting course that will help you to develop and build your reading, writing, and communication skills.
You will practice these literacy skills through reading, writing, literary analysis, and critical thinking as we work with a large variety

  • exploring literature and narrative concepts, both fiction and nonfiction in a variety of genres, purposes, and styles,
  • demonstrating the basics of written expression for a variety of purposes and audiences,
  • developing fundamental writing skills of style, sentence formation, usage/grammar, mechanics, and spelling,

  • exploring and reflecting on learning through independent and group projects, and
  • discussing relationships between and among the elements of literature including satire, irony, symbolism, and plot.

This course sets the foundation for high school English and prepares students for college while giving them knowledge of the world around them.
