Welcome to English 1! I am excited to work with you this year and look forward to getting to know each and every one of you! The goal of this class is to prepare incoming freshman with the skills necessary to succeed in the high school environment and on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR test). We will develop these skills by reading a variety of texts and drafting multiple writing assignments. The English 1 STAAR test, along with the English 1 class credit, is required for high school graduation.
