Students are introduced to a variety of text types and genres and will be able to communicate effectively about them. This includes learning to complete in-depth analysis of functional, expository, persuasive, and literary texts, as well as poetry, drama, and novels. Students work to enhance their communication and problem-solving skills by developing the ability to provide support for their opinions.
