In English Language Arts (ELA), Young Kings will examine the larger concepts of human capability and culpability, the journeys of youth and coming-of-age, and the tensions within both society and self. The course builds upon the literary knowledge and language skills covered in 8th Grade ELA. Young Kings will learn the elements of analytical reading and literary analysis. In addition, they will write structured paragraphs, short compositions, letters, narratives, and research projects using appropriate technology.
