Writing skills are developed through targeted instruction on developing textually-based arguments and synthesis papers from multiple sources. The course also focuses on the research process, wherein students investigate a theme or issue prevalent among the course readings. The year’s work culminates in students taking the New York State Examination in English Language Arts (Common Core), which serves as the final examination of the course.
