English 9
This required course introduces students to basic skills in reading, research in the digital age and the expository writing process, thus laying a foundation for success in Del Oro’s four year English program. Through close reading, reflection and discussion of novels and short fiction as well as informational texts, students will explore the central question: How can a person change and mature through heroic action? Writing assignments engage students in the process of 
expository and literary response compositions as well as documentation of the research process.
