10th Grade English
Language is power. It gives voice to complex thoughts and emotions. It grants the power to persuade, to inspire, to influence. Language is key in all interactions between human beings. Without the power of language we become puppets, slaves to those who have become masters of it. In 10th Grade English our primary focus will be on the analysis of language, on how and why literature affects us. We will also focus on writing poetry, essays, and short narratives. By the time you leave English 10 you will be a more organized writer, a more practiced critical thinker, and a more empathetic human being.
