Literacy 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, target students' gaps in learning, 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.
Grade 8 students register for Literacy 8 and Grade 9 students register for Literacy 9
Online registration for Foundations courses begins on May 1st. Families are encouraged to register early, as space is limited and fills up quickly.
