English as an Additional Language (EAL) is an intermediate language and literature course that strengthens listening, reading, speaking and writing skills in English. Support and strategies will be offered to allow the student to cope better in each of their core courses like social studies, science, and English. Students will focus on academic writing skills, reading strategies, oral presentations, grammar structures, and the expansion of vocabulary. Some class time will also be devoted to helping students approach certain assignments given in other courses.
