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.

*Lunch will be provided between 12-12:30 daily.  Students K-8 will have lunch and transition to recess, monitored by our staff.  Students 9-12 may choose to have lunch and dismiss themselves. Lunch is provided by Bon Appetit who manages the OES Dining Hall and specializes in fresh, local ingredients.
