English 9


English 9

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.” Abigail Adams

English 9 is a foundational course that will prepare students for learning in high school and beyond.  In this course, students will have ample practice in close reading, writing, analysis and discussion of literature, and understanding and applying grammatical concepts.  Our units of study are diverse, extending from ancient mythologies to contemporary young adult authors, and classic novels to Shakespearean plays.  Students meeting proficiency in this class will be well-prepared for future studies in English and other courses.

Please note that all course materials will be posted in Schoology.  Students will create an account and receive a login.  Parents may request a login by contacting me at hjd@oregonsd.net.
