This class is designed to elevate student writing to prepare them for the AP and IB programs at Fort Dorchester High School, as well as college.
Goal: by the end of the year, students will be writing on a college level.
Since this class is not designed to be a literature course, the students will have more choice in the novels they choose for their novel papers. They will choose from a pre-selected list from YALSA’s award winning novels as well as SC YA Award Winning List. It will be their responsibility to acquire the book.
- Writing Utensils – both traditional and colored
- Way to save work both digitally and papers
- Novels from novel list
Students will also be responsible for bring the book to class everyday since SRI time is built into the end of every class period.
