About Our English Class


English Class Introduction


The background painting is called Knight of the Holy Grail (1912) by Frederick J. Waugh. I selected this painting to represent our class theme for this year because it represents the idyllic quest that I think is emblematic of life in general. Here is the quote posted in our class about how life is a quest:

Life Is a Quest

Life is not one long quest, but many short quests, one after another. We all begin our quest with a question. There are no final answers that end our quest, but rather we are guided more by the questions we ask than by the answers we discover.

Our class is a series of discoveries, discoveries that we make with our reading and our writing, and perhaps even more importantly, by the questions we ask along the way. This is also nicely stated in our class goals for the school year 2012-13:

  1. Enrich students’ lives by teaching them more about themselves, Western culture, and the world around them.
  2. Sophisticate students’ communication abilities by sharpening their listening, speaking, reading, writing and inquiry skills.
  3. Instill a desire for life-long learning by cultivating the students’ curiosity with      literature, inquiry, and formal presentation.
