This reading and writing course is the third of four integrated pairs of courses. It emphasizes reading and writing processes with continued vocabulary development, reading in the content areas, and the analysis of fiction and non-fiction. You will also develop a social, cultural, and historical context for reading. You will practice sentence variety and grammar, with writing in a variety of expository essay modes in response to reading. I will meet with you individually to update you regularly about your progress. This course is divided into three parts: classes, tests, and teacher-student conferences. Each is required to pass. Individual conferences will be held in my office (M3-5) during class time. By the end of the course, students who meet the exit criteria will pass to English 099/098.
