Literacy 8/9

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 our 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.

A student's final report card will indicate "Meeting Expectations" or "Not Yet Meeting Expectations".

  • Classes begin on Monday, July 5 and conclude on Friday, July 23, 2021.

  • Classes run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 daily.

  • Attendance is mandatory in all face-to-face and online sessions.

Online registration for Foundations courses begins on May 1st. Families are encouraged to register early, as space is limited and fills up quickly.
