Welcome to English 9. I am thrilled to have a new host of young people to help to survive and thrive in the world of Literature, Grammar and Writing. We will be doing a combination of all three of these along with an emphasis on vocabulary building (especially Greek and Latin roots and prefixes. Some of the Literature you will be reading is The Odyssey by Homer, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. We will also have non-fiction writing throughout the year.
