Literary Studies 10 helps students to increase their literacy skills through close reading of appropriate texts. Students read and study compositions by other writers as models for the development of their own writing. Students have opportunities to individually and collaboratively study, create, and write original pieces, and respond to literature in a variety of appropriate ways.
