This year, students will explore compelling themes through reading, writing, discussions, performances, and research. They will closely read short stories, novels, poems, historical texts, and articles. They will also view and interpret films, plays, and audio texts while comparing them to their related print versions. With frequent opportunities to write creatively and analytically throughout the program, students will develop fluency, research skills, and an understanding of how to craft their writing based on audience and purpose. Through collaborative discussions, presentations, performances, and debates with peers, students will deepen their understanding of the texts they’ve read and viewed, and learn how to convey their ideas with clarity and voice.
