English 9 DR is designed to provide maximum help for students with weak reading, writing, language, and study skills by using a team teaching approach. Students are instructed on how to effectively communicate through the writing of personal essays, expository essays, and journal responses. Students learn how to communicate effectively during oral presentations and readings and learn basic research techniques and library procedures. The major goal is to build a firm foundation of skills and the content necessary to succeed in passing English as well as the Regents examinations in the 10th and 11th grades, respectively. Students are recommended for this program through the Guidance Department at the Middle School or High School teacher referral.
