Joseph Ellington

English Teacher, HS

English 10 and English 11

In English classes, frequent opportunities to engage with authentic texts allow students to deepen their understanding of the specific reading demands of a variety of texts. Explicit writing instruction and frequent opportunities for practice allow students to develop critical thinking skills and apply knowledge.

English 10 focuses on World & Ethnic Literature and expository writing, while English 11 focuses on American Literature and persuasive writing.
