There’s only one world, but how do you see it?

To make an impact on society, the world, or anyone, you must be intentional. Millions of humans coexist on the planet, enduring many of the same experiences, but what makes each different is the way he or she responds to the world. Herein lies the key to change: share your perception of the world in your own way.
ALL ABOUT MLA
The mission of Ms. Palma’s class is exactly what the title implies: to build perception. Through intentional reading, writing, analyzing, and interpreting, we push our minds and train them to think objectively and analytically. This repeated study forces us to take ownership of the way that we take in life, thus expanding our world views. This transformation in perception, however, does not occur accidentally. By exercising the mind, we make it stronger… like any other muscle in the body. Therefore, students in English will commit to their own future successes by taking advantage of the opportunities the year will provide.
