English Language Arts A10

In ELA A10, the goals for the course are to make the students become better writers and more reflective thinkers. We will be accomplishing this by studying poetry, essays, novels, plays, and short stories. We will focus on creating clean, clear, and succinct writing. By completing the homework and the other major assignments, we will be constantly practicing the processes that will help us become effective writers.
