Dr. Seuss so aptly said, “The more that you read, the more things you will love.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”  Thus English Language Arts embodies all the various ways to experience the world including travel and emotions without a passport!

Such is the thrilling journey our class will take to unlock universal truths in fiction and nonfiction of the human condition through time-honored plots, themes, and characters. While analyzing literature, we will share our thoughts and ideas through writing, projects and discourse. Students will be encouraged to unlock their God-given talents.
