English is an important part of our daily lives, no matter what one's vocation. English is more than just writing too. It is important to have a command of the language to successfully communicate and articulate your ideas. In this class we will read, think, write, and discuss many topics. My goal is to prepare my students for the rigors of high school and college, to prepare them for the AIMS and ACT's and SAT's. My expectations are high. We will test regularly in many different forms on a variety of subjects and you will be asked to write weekly if not daily.
