Welcome to Grade 9 Academic English at Rick Hansen Secondary School! This semester, we’re going to read a variety of stories, articles, novels and plays. Take a look at the Assignments page for details on class projects. It will be updated periodically throughout the semester.
We shall also be discussing both local and international news. I am sure you are curious to discover what in the world is happening!
In the first week of school, I will be asking for your email addresses to make you contributors to this website.
Over the course of the semester, you’ll each have to post on this blog five news articles or features related to our classroom discussions. You’ll also be commenting on one another’s posts.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you find and, more importantly, what you think!
