Unit 1: Introduction to Language Arts ends 8/22

In this unit, we briefly explore the broad and often misleading concept of intelligence.  We also confronted former our former challenges, struggles, and successes in Language Arts.  Using the understanding gained from this unit, we are now ready to explore the rigorous (and often controversial) topics ahead of us such as racism, immigration, oppression, identity, censorship, and much more.
