All of our emotions, thoughts, and ideas are understood and communicated through writing, speaking, and reading about them. This year, our class will
work together to develop these essential skills to help you get what you want out of your life.
Whether you are planning on a job following high school, or if you are looking to attend college and beyond, you will need to articulate clearly what you want, what you know, and what you still need to learn.
My role in this class is to help you develop your writing, reading, and speaking and listening skills so that you can more fully and clearly express your great ideas, your practical thoughts, and your changing emotions.
Together we will develop your vocabulary, improve your use of language, and sharpen your communication skills, through close reading, academic discussion, and modeling of modern and classic examples of great writing.
Welcome to your ELA class.
