Turning Points and Planet You 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: Turning Points and Planet You.
Turning Points explores stories of life-changing decisions, rites of passage, and negotiating change. Planet You explores stories of identity, self-esteem, self-image, personal interests, influences, and peer groups. The two themes are brought to life using short stories, articles, poetry, animated shorts, ads, graphic texts, reports, interactive presentations, and more.
