Welcome to 10th Grade Language Arts!Great writers leave lasting impressions. Like Lakeview students, they all had to practice their skills to become great at what they do. They also developed tools along the way to help them succeed. In this class, we will examine what great writers did to create literature that we still study today. In addition to reading literature covering a variety of genres, we will analyze structure, purpose, and literary elements authors use to create meaning. We will also spend time developing strong writing habits of our own, focusing on developing proper grammar, organization, and usage. We will practice our skills in various essays throughout the year, including a research essay that will also show us how to properly utilize technology as a resource for writing.
