We've been busy in our ninth grade Composition Through Literature classes. We've been reading and writing up a storm, and now it is time to share what we've been working on! If you mouse over the images below, you will find links to our online portfolios. They are a work in progress, but we've gotten a good start. We'll be adding to these sites throughout our year together.
