High School English
Students enrolled in High School English are given the opportunity to develop an intrinsic set of skills- An Advanced understanding of Reading, Writing, and Comprehension coupled with an expected grammatical proliferation. Under the watchful guise of the English Instructor, students participate in computer-based learning, classical literature exploration, and more importantly create Arts-Infused projects. However, unique opportunities like "English in the Park", Screen Writing collaborations with the Urban Film School, art themed essays and Fine Art integration lay claim to an exploratory and environmental learning experience exclusive to San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity and its students.
Students gain an insightful knowledge of the English language; an education where they build-up a broad understanding of English [Language Arts] as a vehicle for individual expression. They develop a way to present, reflect, and imagine the world around them in words. The knowledge they gain in English translates from the classroom to the community, the home, and to the workplace-Increasing the aptitude of these students in their "Workforce Readiness".
High School English promotes self-expression through Poetry, Fiction, and Free-Form Writing, Although journals are encouraged, many of the students participate in other ways- by reading their poetry, essays and articles at the many Community Initiatives hosted by San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity.
English I, II, III, IV are courses designed to expose students to a variable of content, including how to project, define, and formulate ideas, themes, issues, problems, and conflicts found in classical and contemporary literature and other publication text, periodicals, speeches, and videos. The Arts-Infused projects, Independent Studies and English TEKS assignements help the students gain an understanding of global and regional cultural, linguistic, and literary traditions.
