This course will focus on the writing process-prewriting, composting, revising, and editing. We will work diligently to improve our use of written conventions, as we study the rules of capitalization, punctuation, correct spelling and grammar, also including sentence structure in both formal and informal languages/settings.
GREAT emphasis will be placed on reading and understanding written text across various genres, as we explore various pieces of literature and texts. We will also master the use of several literary elements such as plot, setting, tone, characterization, theme, figurative language, and more.
We will also listen to and/or view different types of media and further develop our communication skills, as well as a collaborative learning environment.
