In English 8, we'll be exploring various types of literature, doing a lot of writing, and pushing ourselves to think critically. We'll start the year with a literary analysis paper, and then move into looking at nonfiction, what makes a source credible, and our own argumentative writing. We'll return to fiction at the end of the year with a focus on creative writing.
