English Language Arts is an essential part of all courses at AEE. The goal of the AEE English department is to create critically thinking students that are able to communicate effectively in a variety of ways in all of their subject areas. As part of our English curriculum, students are challenged to create research reports, analytical essays, personal narratives, Powerpoint presentations, and multimedia presentations. Within these assignments students prove their ability to read critically, analyze information, use a variety of sources to support arguments, and communicate ideas effectively.
