This course emphasizes the fundamental language skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, thinking, viewing, and presenting. An emphasis on vocabulary and composition skills will be an ongoing part of the program. The course includes studies of various literary genres: short stories, poetry, novel, drama, and non-fiction. The development of critical reading and writing skills is a major emphasis of the course. 

*Students are encouraged to use tools such as Google, Bing, Grammarly, and ChatGPT to complete their assignments. It is better to turn something in, as opposed to nothing at all.
