Class Description

English 9/10 is divided into four units, covering multiple genres and writings throughout history and an end of course portfolio. Students will analyze and discuss a variety of classical, contemporary, and informational literature, as well as write argumentative, informative, and narrative essays. Students will have opportunities to interact with the texts and writings, with their peers and instructor in group settings (if available), and independently throughout the course. Students in English 9/10 should read a variety of rich texts, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc. Students will also focus on the writing process by working with graphic organizers, drafting, revising, conferencing, revising, and creating a final product.

Because this class meets one hour a week, students are strongly encouraged to set up times for private tutoring with Dr. Brown as needed. It's really nice to have the class discussion one day a week and completely personalized attention for another! Dr. Brown can commit to a regular schedule (i.e., every Tuesday at the same hour throughout the semester), or set up a limited run of tutoring as needed.

About the Instructor

KB Brown

I believe that the relationship between teacher and student is the most important aspect of good education. I also believe in the importance of good questions to spark the mind of the student. I prefer discussions to lectures, and I aim to make classes and tutoring sessions student-centered and interactive.
