Throughout the year, students will develop writing styles at a mastery level. They will be expected to write many different genres of writing such as: expository, narrative, persuasive, and descriptive. MLA style will be taught and used for all writing assignments. Students will be expected to complete a major writing assignment every month. 

In this class, students will be challenged to write routinely and with rigor.  Each unit will focus on a different genre of writing, that will be aligned to a rubric provided at the start of each new paper.  We will also be working in our Language Arts textbook to focus on necessary grammar skills that will help students become proficient readers, writers, and speakers.
