This course prepares students to enter University Studies/Career Tech., and Vocational programs. This is an integrated skills course; however, the main focus is on reading and writing. Through a number of literary works, students become aware of style and in turn use this knowledge to develop their writing skills. The course offers comprehensive and stimulating literary analysis, formal essay writing and a step by step approach on how to give an oral presentation.
