Summit's Language Arts Program
Summit offers a literature-based curriculum that introduces students to a variety of high-quality works. Each course, from English I through English IV, focuses on responding to and analyzing written works both orally and in writing, with strong emphasis on the writing of essays and other full-length products. In addition, the English department has developed a scope and sequence for grammar study at each level with additional topics introduced or re-taught as necessary. It is the intention of the English department to provide students with the powers of analysis to make reading and writing about literature a meaningful experience, as well as to create engaging experiences with literature that will foster life-long reading pleasure. Students are asked to purchase Writers Inc. to use as a resource if they do not already own a copy.
