This website is intended for students in Ms. Lentino's College Prep English 9 course.
The aim of this course is to stimulate and develop thinking skills by exposing students to a variety of texts focusing on the theme of “identity.” Through readings and discussions in the areas of fictional novels, non-fiction, drama, poetry, and short stories, students will make thematic connections while learning and practicing analytic and critical reading and writing skills.
The literature of this course will provide for various writing assignments and research-related activities. The primary focus for writing assignments is the expository essay; however, opportunities for personal and creative assignments will be provided. Independent reading assignments will require students to report through in-class essay format, oral presentations, or project-based assessments. Students will be expected to work collaboratively in and out of class.
