English Curriculum

The English curriculum will improve reading, writing, listening, speaking, and thinking skills for students of all abilities.  Throughout the year, students are introduced to a variety of literature such as novels, short stories, plays, poems, and non-fiction. 

Students are expected to write both creative and analytical essays. Students can monitor their own progress through the year as all assignments remain on file in the classroom for the duration of the year.  Class discussions and cooperative learning are important components of English classes–all students are expected to participate fully.  Elective courses are offered for those students who wish to go beyond the standard departmental requirements or who are interested in exploring specific areas of literature or writing.
