English/Language Arts: The goals of the English/Language Arts courses are for students to read and understand a wide variety of literary and informational texts; compose a variety of written texts with a clear controlling idea, coherent organization, and sufficient detail; research to locate a range of relevant sources and evaluate, synthesize, and present ideas and information; listen and respond to the ideas of others while contributing their own ideas in conversations and in groups; and learn how to use the oral and written conventions of the English language in speaking and writing. English 7 is a course that emphasizes close reading strategies to develop skills in literary analysis and the development of composition skills. All students have a required summer reading assignment each year.
