Mr. Swan's English Class


Why Reading Skills Matter

"The problem with being too busy to read is that you learn by experience the hard way...Thanks to my reading, I have never been caught flat-footed by any situation, never at a loss for how any problem has been addressed (successfully or unsuccessfully) before. It doesn't give me all the answers, but it lights what is often a dark path ahead."   ― General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis

Why Writing Skills Matter

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’Tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”   ― Mark Twain

Why Literature Matters

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”    ― F. Scott Fitzgerald
