    This year we will work for a solid foundation in writing; students will learn to write formal take-home essays, write in-class on-demand essays, and write proper research papers.
    We will be reading a variety of literature throughout the year. The following is a list of possibilities: 
     The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury
    Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
    The Secret Sharer by Joseph Conrad
    Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
    Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier 
    Time Machine by H.G. Wells
    War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
    Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
    Iliad by Homer
    Odyssey by Homer
    Students will also be reading novels of their own choosing. 
    Our research will cover how to properly utilize print sources, the general internet, and databases and how to incorporate researched information into a formal paper.
    Also, we will have fun.
