Syllabus Title: 
English 9
Syllabus Description: 

In English 9, you'll learn the beauty of the English language from short stories, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and the novel by reading some of history’s best-known classics. You’ll learn grammar, usage, and standard forms of American English by taking journeys through some of the world's greatest adventure and love stories. Imagine yourself in the Yukon as you read Jack London’s The Call of the Wild−−a story of strong, courageous sled dogs during the 1890’s Klondike Gold Rush. Step back to ancient Greece and learn about life and love as you read Homer’s The Odyssey with the sweeping language that not only made it an epic but also, one of the world’s greatest adventure stories. Then, journey through the tale of two star-crossed lovers in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, complete with some of English’s most beautiful and delicate imagery. Our activities will incorporate reading, writing, oral communication, and language study while focusing on far away places and times!
