Students will participate in academic discussions using a wide range of advanced academic vocabulary and content-specific words and phrases, a wide variety of complex phrases and clauses and produce and expand simple, compound and complex sentences using complex transitions. Students will also analyze the reasoning in persuasive spoken texts.
