This competency-based course is designed to develop reading comprehension, literary analysis, writing, and listening and speaking skills. A diagnostic test of writing skills allows for a thorough review of sentence and paragraph structure, usage, and punctuation. Students discuss, analyze, and interpret the novel, drama, poetry, the short story, news articles and technical writing. After reviewing the writing process and the use of a rubric for essay composition and evaluation, students build a varied portfolio of writing: a persuasive essay, a character sketch, a problem-solution essay, a comparison/contrast essay, interpretations of drama and a novel, an evaluative essay and an original work of fiction.
