Welcome to the 2016 – 2017 school year at GMC! This course is a language arts course for high school seniors designed to prepare students for the demands of two- or four-year college degree programs and for the workplace.  Selections in British literature are organized chronologically. Grammar is studied in light of composition problems. The study of composition includes the development of the multi-paragraph essay, research, and imaginative writing. Vocabulary skills are also emphasized. This course is taught as a college preparatory level course and meets State Department requirements for admission to college.
