​​​This course begins on July 5, 2023 and concludes on July 21, 2023.  
Classes run from 9:00 to 12:05  (Monday-Friday) at Argyle Secondary (1131Frederick Road)

literacy-photo-2018.jpgLiteracy 8/9 is designed for students who meet the following criteria:

  • have taken English Language Arts 8 or 9, but their competency is emerging or developing

  • have an incomplete bank of core skills and foundational knowledge

  • require additional teacher support and direct instruction in developing foundational skills and knowledge

Literacy 8/9 focuses on curricular and core competencies. Literacy 8/9 is NOT a review of English 8 or 9 and NOT a preview course. (Please note, ELL students are better placed in the ELL 8-11 course.)  

The Literacy course is personalized, as it is tailored to students' individual needs and provides extra support in developing reflective and actively engaged learners.

Families are encouraged to register early, as space is limited and fills up quickly.
