Course Goals:Welcome to English! Our goal is to create a community of critical thinkers and problem solvers that read, write and speak effectively. We will be reading a variety of short stories, poetry, novels, and essays by both American and international authors. Additionally, we will work to sharpen our decoding skills, reading fluency, vocabulary development and comprehension. We will also write about what we read and make connections to the world and ourselves.
