English classes in Detroit are getting more interesting this week.
This week the city is adding a new class to its schedule that teaches the basics of writing, reading, and listening.
The class is the second of its kind in the city, and the second one is being offered by the Detroit Free Press.
As the Detroit Department of Education’s assistant principal for education and public engagement, I am excited about the opportunity to serve as a leader in this new class, which will be held in a special location in the Public Library on Thursday.
While this class is a new addition to the Detroit English Classes schedule, I can assure you that this is an exciting opportunity to learn from a number of outstanding teachers in the profession.
First and foremost, this is a class that students can attend in their own time, and this class will be offered from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Thursday, June 19.
We have a number classes that have been offered at the Public library before, and it is important to us that our students have the opportunity at all times to explore the books, songs, and other cultural artifacts that make up our public library.
This class is not just for students who are interested in learning the basics; this class allows students to explore their personal reading and writing abilities, to hear stories and share their ideas with others, and to develop the ability to communicate with others.
I am excited to see the excitement this class brings to our students.
Students are expected to have two or three minutes to speak, read aloud, and listen to the teacher.
Students are also expected to write their own answers, or write an essay on their own.
As always, the Detroit Public Library is excited to support students in their pursuit of education and to provide the opportunity for students to get the most out of their education.
