Students will develop new perspectives through interpreting literature, expanding vocabulary, and writing creatively; they will also enhance their writing skills by examining point of view, character development, figurative language, and audience. This course is highly interactive and includes a live course orientation, weekly webinars with the course instructor, and reviews with the course TA. This is the first course in a two-part Tenth-Grade English series (ENGL 045 and ENGL 047). This course also encompasses Common Core State Standards.
