Nelson Literacy 9 presents a new approach to English Language Arts. It will captivate students with rich, embedded, interactive media and current, high-impact texts. It also includes built-in instructional support, practice, and assessment to help students and teachers meet curriculum learning outcomes and expectations. Nelson Literacy is backed by thorough research and built on current, effective pedagogy.
Nelson Literacy 9 is made up of four units with four different themes. This book is divided between two themes: It Takes Courage and What’s Next?
It Takes Courage explores stories of heroism, daring to be different, facing fears, standing up to peer pressure, and confronting injustice. What’s Next? explores possibilities for the future, technological and scientific advancements, human ingenuity, and ecological awareness. The two themes are brought to life using short stories, articles, poetry, animated shorts, ads, graphic texts, interactive presentations, and more.
