They learn to write well for a variety of purposes and engage a wide range of texts, from Shakespeare to graphic novels. Class sizes are small. We believe the best English classrooms are communities in which students and teachers work together to analyze, apply, and construct meaning. Every year faculty design courses in response to changes in the field and student interests. and changes in the analyze, apply, and construct meaning. Every year, Recent topics include Literature of the Central Valley, Multiethnic Memoir, Victorian Children's Literature and Sports Writing.
