Sports writing will be a one-semester class available to seniors which will focus on different styles of writing with a sports focus. “The Sports Writing class is a step up from Advanced Composition, so it’ll look at all the same writing skills. Students will probably be writing game recaps, player profiles, sports narratives, as well as sports commentary and persuasive pieces,” English teacher Ms. Kari Koshiol said.
The hope is that the class will fulfill a more diverse student interest, honing writing skills while engaging students in a topic they are interested in. “Sports writing encourages students to write specifically in that sports area, which some students like, and there are all sorts of things that you can do with those skills,” English department head Mr. Tom Backen said.
