Language Arts Department
The Metea Valley Language Arts Department shares in LIFE's journey as invested cultural participants by inspiring individual thought, constructive communication, and empowered action.
A student must be registered in a core English course each semester. The curriculum builds language skills sequentially from freshman through senior levels. Writing-based courses introduce, develop, and refine student skills in all aspects of the writing process including literary analyses, personal essays, and creative writings. In addition, reading development is approached through the various literature studied in each course.
The first three years of English course work consist of three full-year core courses: English I, II, and III.
In the senior year the student must take:
- a minimum of two semester choices from the list of senior choices
The Communication Electives (special interest courses) may be taken in addition to the core curriculum but do not count toward fulfillment of English requirements for graduation.
