EXPOSITORY READING and WRITING
Entering Grades 9-12 – Expository reading and writing skills will help students excel on the reading and writing portions of standardized tests, while also developing lifelong literacy and college readiness. In this course, students will learn to read critically, make predictions about texts, analyze content and rhetorical structures, and properly use materials from texts to support their own written arguments. Readings will be enhanced through expository writing, most often through timed essays. Students will learn to organize ideas and construct persuasive arguments that advance their own ideas with a developed voice.
