English Language Arts

Welcome to English 9, Honors English 9, English 10, Honors English 10, and AP Lang.!
 
These classes are all about becoming stronger learners: curious, critical, communicative, caring, and able to solve problems, create, and devise intelligent solutions.
 
The world is a complex place and you have a very important role in both understanding it and changing it.  I hope this class will be an asset that allows you to do both. We will explore questions about the human condition, people's struggles, and visions of what life and society could be like.
 
You will read, write, and engage in meaningful discussions.  If you have never liked reading, you will grow to love it, and if you already love reading, you will think more deeply about what you read.  You will work with your classmates and build our class as a comfortable and caring academic community so that you can take risks, learn, and be your best. 
 
My desire is to support you for college, multiple careers, and life as a responsible global citizen. 
 
I look forward to our work together as teacher, students and parents/family! If you need to communicate with me, please talk to me in person or email me at dipti.baranwal@lausd.net.
 
I hold Office Hours (tutoring) after school on Wednesdays from 3:15 to 4:15 in room 354.   Alternately, you can always talk to me to set up a tutoring appointment on a different day if needed.
