In Academy English, students learn English in context through reading and writing in a variety of styles. Space, engineering and technology themes are incorporated through science fiction novels and short stories, reports on famous people, and other projects and activities.
For example, In Academy English 1, students learn the development of plot and story by studying Star Wars. At the same time, in SEA Physics, students analyze the physics (both good and bad) of Star Wars. In Academy English 2, students study the novel Jurassic Park while they work on biotechnology in their SEA Biology class.
If you are taking Academy English 1 PreAP or Academy English 2 PreAP in the fall, you have a summer assignment. You need to complete this assignment before the first day of school in August.
