Grammar: Grammar will be covered on an as-needed basis. We will continue to stress the fundamentals while working on producing more polished sophisticated writing with an emphasis on sentence variety, quote integration, and finding your voice as a writer.
Writing: You will write on various topics over the course of the year. However, there will be eight major papers which will serve as benchmarks in evaluating your writing. This includes the literary research paper.
The Term Paper: This major literary research project is comprised of a summary, sentence outline, rough draft, and final draft. For more information and handouts related to the term paper, check out the Senior English page!
