Designed for students who will enter 9th grade in the fall, this course introduces various high school critical writing expectations: the structure and organization of a critical essay, choosing text evidence in order to develop and support a thesis, formatting, MLA citation, basic grammar and sentence structure. We will read a short story together and students will write several drafts of a critical essay about the story.
