Course Description

Course Name:  English I

Subject: Language Arts

Course Number: 1001310

Credit Earned: 1.0 credit

Prerequisites: None

Course description: What can you see?  Somebody (your teacher) really wants to know.  This is one course in which what you see and what you say really matters.

No two people experience books, plays, or community events in exactly the same way, and no two people describe their experiences with the same words.  How clearly can you see what is happening before you?  How compellingly can you describe what you saw to others?  In this course, you will find out.

Great books, short stories, poems and plays convey messages and feelings that make them great.  In this course, you will learn how to look for the message.  You will learn how to trust your feelings about that message.  And you will learn how to express clearly and convincingly what you think.  The purpose of this course is to give you the tools to see and hear with real understanding, and to communicate with real conviction.
