Ninth graders at King's Academy step on campus and join an inquisitive, dynamic and formative literary community. They lay the foundation for their exploration of English literature by grappling with texts from a range of literary traditions. They not only analyze narrative, verse and drama, but also challenge the text – and in the process, challenge the world around them. They become readers and writers with greater confidence, expression and stamina. Students review the fundamentals of English grammar and syntax, expand their vocabularies and work to build a tool box for reading and writing mastery.
