Composition 9

Students write for various audiences and purposes. They strengthen skills in paragraph and multi-paragraph writing, focusing on the development of thesis, supporting points, and specific details. Students recognize the paragraph as a formal structure, and understand that composition is an organized message from an author to a specific identified audience. Students write a narrative, a comparison, a persuasive letter, and a response to literature. Grammar is studied in context with these writing assignments. The writing process is emphasized. Students are introduced to the Modern Language Association style format and use technology in the writing process.
