Sixth-grade Language Arts marks a turning point for you in your academic career. After developing and practicing the skills necessary to develop a strong foundation for your success at the elementary level, you are now ready to embark on the next step in your journey as a reader and writer. Based on the Common Core State Standards, this course will help you grow as a reader and writer of both literary and informational text. You will read a number of complex, thematically related narratives, short stories, extended informational texts, and nonfiction articles. You will learn to analyze these varied texts, to identify key ideas and details, to compare and contrast major text elements, and to distinguish between those claims supported by evidence and those that are not. You will then try your hand at writing your own arguments and supporting them with research-based evidence, and you will work to improve your writing by taking it through the steps of the writing process. In your own life, these reading and writing skills will benefit you immensely no matter what path you choose to take in your future. Professional athletes, doctors, accountants, teachers, salespeople, politicians, scientists, and technology gurus read, write, communicate, and collaborate on a daily basis. The goal through all of this is to help you become a reader, writer, and communicator capable of critical thinking and analysis, so that as you continue on your learning journey, you have the tools and foundation you need to succeed.

This course will teach you main things that you need to know when starting to learn Martial Arts. I provided an abundance of entertaining and informative videos that will go in detail on each topic that you will need to know. Virtually every lecture is accompanied by an instructional video. I will provide supplemental materials such as Power Point presentation with most of the videos for an easy review when you need it. Completion of the course does not mean that you mastered it, I would strongly suggest going through the course multiple times and practicing every technique hundreds of times. As Bruce Lee said, "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times." The structure of the course is fairly simple. I will start by explaining the points of a good stance. I will then show you some basic footwork that you should be practicing. Once you have a stance and the footwork down, we will then move on to basic punches. Once you have that down I will then introduce you to basic kicks. Lastly, I will show you two, in my opinion, most useful self defense techniques that you will be able to use in a street today! I will show you the major different ways of doing each technique so that your practice do not get dull. I will also show you common mistakes that people make and how to avoid them. So grab a pair of comfortable pants and let's get started!

English II is the second in a sequence of English courses for high school students. These courses seek to give you the necessary reading, writing, thinking, and research skills to find success in college or the workplace. As the second course, English II challenges you to look deeper within a text for its meaning and provide thoughtful, analytical, and persuasive responses. You will be expected to build literary analysis from the texts as well as outside sources of knowledge. You will first learn to dissect a text for varied levels of meaning, how to interpret this meaning with a critical eye, and how to look beyond the text for its relevance. You will then be expected to read a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts of different lengths, complexities, and genres, and respond to them through questions, annotations, independent research, and essay writing. Texts and assignments will gradually increase in rigor, challenging you to improve the efficacy and complexity of your analysis and writing skills. Because the objectives of English II are skill based, and therefore transferable across other disciplines, you will read from a broad spectrum of content. Texts will include classic fictional literature, historical documents, scientific studies, current news articles, and materials relevant to the modern-day workplace. While English Language Arts retains some of its literary tradition, you should expect the content to align with, and supplement, the material in your other courses. By the conclusion of English II, you will be prepared for the material in upper level high school English courses (and, subsequently, collegiate texts). You will be able to read and interpret more autonomously, and you will be able to handle more rigorous texts with fewer instructional supports.
