This course will serve a dual role of exposing students to a variety of writing styles and introducing them to great literature with opportunities for written analysis. Students will write a process essay, a descriptive essay, a personal narrative, an informative essay, a persuasive essay, a comparison/contrast essay, and a short story. Through reading classic and contemporary books, students will develop the fundamental skills necessary to recognize literary elements. Students will complete reading at home with a new book assigned every 2 weeks or so. Several classic short stories will be studied, and these will be provided by the instructor. Students will demonstrate their understanding of each story and book through class discussion and responsive writing. Canvas will be used extensively for posting and submitting assignments and general communication. Important Note: The introductory sessions of this course will focus on a light grammar review. However, this course is NOT a substitution for grammar and spelling. Those subjects should be taught outside of SAIL in conjunction with this course.
