Welcome to 9th Grade English! I'm excited to work with you this year. We will focus on your reading and writing skills this year as we try to prepare for your high school years ahead and your education after high school. This year we will focus on genre and how we write conveys different messages. We will also focus on looking a little deeper at the things we read and ask the question, "why?" We'll examine the purpose behind the things that people write and create. I look forward to a great year and I hope you do too!
