Course Discipline:


Language Arts

Course Description:


This course provides students a balanced program of reading, writing, oral communication, literature, and language study. All of the high school content standards and benchmarks for Language Arts are addressed in this course. Reading, writing, speaking , and listening are experienced as interactive and interrelated processes. Students learn to achieve desired effects and purposes. They learn to make conscious choices about options within these processes in their efforts to clarify and shape their thinking, communicate with others, and to evaluate the effectiveness of their choices.

The study of literature includes a wide variety of works that contribute to an understanding of our common culture and the culture of others, and that reflect the universal themes uniting all cultures. Selections include traditional contemporary, canonical and non-canonical texts. The student of language involves both the description of language and its role in communication and the construction of meaning. Students explore and experience both the unity and diversity of language - how language differs, yet enables people to share personal and common belief.
