English I, II, III, IV, PSEO English Literature, PSEO College Writing and PSEO Speech
The courses that are grouped together under the general heading of English are those that deal with the development of man’s thought processes, especially his imagination, through various forms of communication. These include the topics of literature, grammar, composition, and speech. First and foremost, the English curriculum will, in all forms, emphasize a Christian approach to the comprehension, interpretation, and sympathetic consideration of the thoughts of our fellow man. Students must acquire the various forms and techniques of communicating thoughts and feelings, and then must apply these basics to both understand and consider the communications and concerns of other people and cultures, past and present, and to transmit their own ideas, concerns and emotions to others. As these skills are learned and applied, students will gain confidence and self-awareness in their ability to encourage others in the faith and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The students will: 1. Value language and communication as precious gifts from God 2. Acquire the conventions of language necessary for successful communication 3. Develop competency in the various techniques of communication, both oral and written as well as through the use of various technology 4. Apply communication and literary techniques to understanding other people and cultures 5. Value listening, reading, and technology as learning tools 6. Develop the ability to read critically and analytically in all literary genres 7. Develop an increased awareness of himself and his potential

1. grammatical and usage exercises 2. formal speeches and oral presentations 3. collaborative exercises 4. a survey of the writing process 5. exploring study skills, research techniques, and media center use 6. testing and evaluating student work 7. structured writing assignments 8. literary interpretation of novels, poetry, short stories, nonfiction and drama
