The English I course is designed for entering freshmen students. The theme of English I is understanding the way internal and external factors affect one’s perspective on society and influences our lives. The goal of English I is for students to become familiar with the structure and richness of literary genres of the short story, the novel, the play, and poetry. Students’ understanding of personal challenges is enhanced through the exploration of the resolution of conflict in literary works. Written composition and the practical application of the mechanics of grammar and vocabulary are incorporated through various writing assignments throughout the freshmen year.
