Welcome to 9th Grade Honors Literature and Composition!
Ninth Grade Literature and Composition is a course in which students will have opportunities to develop and expand their knowledge of literature and language and demonstrate their mastery level of new learning through performance tasks and assessments. At the completion of this course, students will take the Ninth Grade End-of-Course Test required by state law.
Ninth Grade Honors Literature and Composition is a prerequisite course for Tenth Grade Honors Literature and Composition, and ultimately, Advanced Placement Language in eleventh grade. This course of study is rigorous and should be attempted only by serious readers and writers.
Google Classroom: Because I am making a concerted effort to be more environmentally friendly, most of your assignments will be delivered and turned in via Google Classroom (of course, an exception will be in-class, timed writes). Below is the access code for your Google Class.
Remind is a group text messaging system that I use in my class. Once again, you will get a code to sign up for Remind and the expectation is that you will do so ASAP. Below is the link to your class Remind. I will give you instructions on how to sign up, as well.

Below is the link to the Georgia Common Core Standards. At any given time, we will be addressing at least one, but more often than not, more than one, Standard. Students will have a variety of ways to show mastery.
Here you will find a link to the class syllabus. Once you and your parents go over the syllabus, please sign of on the Google Survey.
