The purpose of this class is to prepare NPA’s seniors for life outside of the classroom: whether that be university, trade school, the job market, and at home.
Reading and writing are tools that we use to empower ourselves, and senior English aims to both encourage students to use these tools and to feel confident in their ability to do so.
How and Why
From morning until night, we consume media. Office memos. News articles. Movies. Books. Advertisements. Podcasts. Music. (I know that those are sentence fragments. It was a stylistic choice.) Each writer, unwittingly or consciously, uses rhetorical tools to promote messages. NPA’s seniors will learn how to identify those methods and messages and how to use those tools for themselves.

This course is structured around speaking events officially recognized by the National Forensic League. You can expect to learn how to channel natural competitive energy into positive communication strategies, how to prepare a good speech, and how to move or entertain audiences.
