Description: This course is a comprehensive, full-credit English class for high schoolers, covering grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading comprehension, and literature.  The goal of this course is to prepare and equip students for the critical thinking and communication skills they will need in college, in their careers, and during their entire adult lives.  We will work on a variety of writing styles, including literary analysis, persuasive essays, and creating writing.  We will also learn and practice literary analysis skills.  Reading selections will include fiction and non-fiction works looking at what it means to be an outcast or outsider, helping students develop a deeper understanding of our need for forgiveness, belonging, and compassion.  Reading selections will contain some sensitive material.  Weekly practice with proofreading and vocabulary are included.
