English

English classes at Chico Junior High School are integrated language arts courses in which students read and respond to literature (both fiction and nonfiction), experience all stages of the writing process (brainstorming, rough draft, revising, editing, final draft) and prepare and give oral presentations.

Students learn and practice research skills, work on developing vocabulary, basic grammar, writing and spelling skills.
