Welcome to Ms. Madden's English Courses Class Pages! I teach 10th Grade World Literature Advanced and 12th Grade AP English Literature at San Diego Early/Middle College. I have been teaching at SDEMC since 2009, after choosing to leave the comprehensive high school setting for a progressive option that I felt better served students. I have never looked back!
My English courses focus on building Critical Thinking skills in addition to reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. My students engage in challenging work- reading and analyzing complex texts and producing unique projects and written assignments as evidence of their learning. In addition to building stronger language arts skills, we also build a community of writers and thinkers. We learn to share our ideas and respect the perspectives and opinions of others.
