Mr. Scott Phillips
Welcome to my class. I have taught 8th grade English Language Arts at Ford Middle School for over 25 years. I teach two different sections of ELA.
I teach the English portion of GT Humanities, which is open to students who have qualified for admission into the Allen ISD gifted and talented program. GT Humanities is a double-block class that pairs English and history together. The history class is taught by Bob Campbell, and he and I work together to plan and execute lessons.
I also teach English 8, which is open to all students who chose to register for the course. English 8 emphasizes the interconnected nature of listening, speaking, reading, writing and thinking. Students will engage in academic conversations and read and write on a daily basis with opportunities for cross-curricular content and student choice. This course focuses on further developing knowledge and skills with increased complexity and nuance in order for students to think critically and adapt to the ever-evolving nature of language and literacy.
