    Cover of Part-Time Indian   Cover of Scarlet Letter  cover of Huckleberry Finn  Cover Of Mice and Men

  • This course is designed for students to thrive in a teacher-directed resource room environment. The overarching goal for this course is that students will refine, apply, and extend the solid foundation of knowledge, skills, and strategies they have developed in their English I/Reading Foundations course. Using the lens of leadership skills, students in this course will develop a world perspective by analyzing classic and contemporary texts in a variety of genre. Grammar, sentence-structure, and essay writing will be the focus as well as real life application of the writing process. Students will identify and apply their own leadership skills and prepare for responsible action as American citizens in the context of a global world.
