This advanced course offers students additional challenge with higher expectations in reading, writing, and critical thinking. Students complete a summer reading and writing assignment. During the school year, the class will engage in inferential and analytical reading development, as well as essay skill building. The course will cover all core material presented to other freshmen, but will move faster to enable the introduction of additional reading and writing. Critical thinking activities will supplement the curriculum.
