Language and Literature through the Arts: In the course, students will have a unique opportunity to advance their reading and writing skills in a rigorous learning environment tailored to their specific interests. Texts will include various fiction and non-fiction texts, but will also include mediums from the five Burncoat art magnet disciplines: dance, theater, visual arts, media arts, and music. Students will draft and edit clearly written and logically organized arguments, informative/explanatory essays, and narratives using evidence from texts. Students will work collaboratively on assignments and projects throughout the course and will learn to present their creative and analytical work in a variety of formats. This honors-level course is designed for students in the Hanover Insurance Academy for the Arts. This course will also cover all of the ELA standards for Grade 9. As an honors level course, the content will be covered at an accelerated pace. Students will study topics at a deeper level and will be expected to complete more independent coursework and assignments.
