Whether you like it or hate it, the reality is that the skills covered in a high school English class are necessary for success both in and out of school. In Grade 9 Academic English we cover a variety of literature including novels, poetry, short stories and plays. We also work on developing critical thinking and writing skills so students can effectively voice their opinions on a variety of topics. There is a fair amount of work in the class, (both in terms of reading and writing) but hopefully students have some fun and appreciate the purpose of all their hard work.
The information in this section of WilsonTeacher.ca is designed to make life easier by providing students with assignments, resources and other relevant class material. Make use of it!
Here is the outline for this course:
