LA High School focuses on developing well-rounded and deep thinking high school students. This course will engage students in improving grammar, vocabulary, composition, poetics, and literary analysis skills. LA High School students will enjoy an intensive grammar review through 4-level grammar analysis. Students will experience thirty rigorous vocabulary lessons based on Latin and Greek stems and will learn the power of words and how to use them well and wisely. Students will delve into academic writing and learn writing structure, organization of ideas, and advanced MLA formatting for research papers. Students will complete four well-constructed academic papers. Poetry is an often underused method of improving writing skill; however, LA High School will utilize poetry to learn writing analysis, poetic techniques, and how to apply these techniques to improve students’ writing. The literature component employs a whole books methodology, drawing from three classic novels, where students will be challenged with reading comprehension discussion, quizzes, writing assignments, and writing feedback from the teacher. This class is taught from a Christian worldview and begins with prayer. Students are required to have a microphone.
