Welcome to English 9, Honors English 9, English 10, American Literature/Composition, and Peer Counseling!
These classes are all about developing to be:
- caring and ethical
- culturally rooted
- connected to others
- critical thinkers
- capable of developing intelligent solutions to many problems.
The world is a complex place and you have a very important role in both understanding it and changing it. I hope your class with me will support you to do both. We will explore questions about the human condition, people's struggles, arts, technology, culture, and our visions of what society could and should be like.
You will read, write, and engage in meaningful discussions. Collaborating with your classmates will be a crucial component of creating an intellectual community that supports you to take risks, learn, support each other, and be your best.
All of these courses will prepare you for college, multiple careers, and life as a responsible global citizen.
