The English Language Arts Department offers a wide selection of courses designed to advance the interests and abilities of all students. Students will be empowered to apply literacy skills in their course work, both in the English Language Arts Department and in other core content areas as well.
It is the Overland-Prairie Campus expectation that our students will be prepared for college, the workforce, and life in society. To ensure this, our focus is on building students' capacity for life-long writing adaptability, research, and the ability to access literature across various genres.
At Prairie, all students are provided a rigorous curriculum aligned with the Colorado Academic State Standards. The curriculum has an intense focus on argumentative writing and reading complex text. Once at Overland, students have the opportunity to receive college credit from Advanced Placement courses or in any concurrent enrollment course offered. Furthermore, students interested in the area of journalism, speech/debate and creative writing have the opportunity to fuel their passions.
