Welcome to English III

The philosophy of English III is to give students access to the skills that will enable them to successfully complete English III and be fully prepared for the challenges of English IV. Students are expected to read and understand a wide variety of literary and informational texts and respond to those texts by composing a variety of written texts demonstrating a clear controlling idea, coherent organization and sufficient details. Students are expected to employ research skills in order to locate, evaluate and synthesis information. They are also expected to listen and respond respectfully to the ideas of others as well as contribute to the academic conversation themselves; therefore, oral and written language shall be appropriate to and productive for the exploration of academic thought. Lastly, this course focuses on four areas of concern: thinking skills, critical reading skills, recursive grammar skills, and the exploration of a variety of composition skills.
