English 3: Composition and Grammar is the third in a series of one-half unit courses which stress a positive interest in language and training in writing. In this course, students concentrate on writing paragraphs for different purposes using vivid language and varied sentence patterns. Students also expand their familiarity with information resources and are introduced to the documented research paper.
In completing this course, among other activities, students focus on strengthening their prewriting skills and writing well-organized paragraphs using varied vocabulary, structures and rhythms. They then write longer personal narratives, comparison/contrast essays and persuasive essays. Students end the course by writing a short research paper.
There are 6 examinations in English 3: Composition and Grammar.
