English Department Overview
The English Language Arts curricula are integrated literature based courses in which students of all four years are grouped heterogeneously. All four levels concentrate on reading comprehension through strategies for active readers, literary analysis, critical thinking skills, vocabulary development, and the writing process. In addition, for enhancement and enjoyment all four levels are supplemented with novels that correspond to each year of study.
