Course Overview
                This year, we are going to be discovering several types of writing. My reasons for doing this is to give students choices for which type they want to focus on. We will practice all of them, but students will be writing a finished piece in a style of their choice for a specific unit. We will also be working on grammar, vocabulary, and literary devices. Here is a mini preview of what we’ll be doing and some of its structure.
**These may change based on student and teacher needs throughout. We are ever growing, ever changing.
