ESL ~ English I & II for Speakers of Other Languages and Reading:
Designed for students whose first language is not English, these classes assist students in learning the English language while studying grade-level content and developing skills in writing, analytic reading, and critical thinking. Consistent progress in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking in English will be the greatest measure of success. Students will establish a writing portfolio, analyze a variety of texts, make classroom presentations, and incorporate technology in their academic products.
