Arden English Department
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on grammar, writing, literature, and vocabulary to continue students' development to communicate and think critically. Course components include the study of rich and varied literary and informational text and writing in the genres of argumentative, informative/explanatory, narrative, and summaries of reading materials. Students work independently, as well as collaboratively, to learn how to understand what they read and evaluate and author's assumptions and claims. Students will conduct research that requires the analysis of resources and accurate interpretation of literary and informational text.
