    Students will maximize success when dealing with reading and writing skills typically encountered in the classroom. The course will focus on critical reading through strategies like proper highlighting and annotating in texts, locating key words, building vocabulary, and mapping an argument from a text. Genres to be explored include short stories, poems, and analytical essays on current events. Students will also strengthen paragraph development and essay writing, including effective word usage, sentence construction, and topic sentence development, as well as the pre-writing and outlining phase of essay production. This course is recommended for students new to Hawken School but is ideal for any student needing to strengthen or enhance these skills.
