    Course Description

    COMPOSITION                                                                                             

    Composition, a course based on Indiana's Academic Standards for English/Language Arts and emphasizing the High School Composition Standards, is a study and application of the rhetorical (effective) writing strategies of narration, description, exposition, and persuasion.  Using the writing process, students demonstrate a command of vocabulary, English language conventions, research and organizational skills, an awareness of the audience, the purpose for writing, and style. Students read classic and contemporary literature or articles and use appropriate works as models for writing.  Students write a variety of types of compositions with a focus on fictional narratives, reflective compositions, academic essays, and responses to literature.
