Language Arts 9
The focus of the Language Arts 9 course is learning about the journey' that take us through our human existence.
We will be digging deep into methods for incorporating researched information into our writing effectively, breaking down the structures of the writing genres to dissect them.
We seek to discovery all the tools that author's use when writing a piece. Everything from setting to conflict to word choice and organization are all vital components that we often take for granted from the audience's seat - not so, from the writer's seat.
