The primary focus of the English Department is to help students achieve the ability to read and think critically, and communicate effectively in a variety of written and spoken modes. As students progress through the scope and sequence from Pre-K through the senior English curriculum, their skills in recognizing the elements of literature, appreciating the complexity and coherence of good writing, understanding the major periods in literary history, and reading works that challenge their perspectives and philosophies should also evolve. They learn to apply the rules of standard usage to their own speaking and experiment with various modes and styles of writing, learn to synthesize materials from a variety of sources, and gain confidence in literary analysis. They should become acquainted with the most common roots, prefixes, and suffixes; develop their vocabularies; and learn to make appropriate word choices. Students in the Middle School build vocabulary through reading and discussion; teacher-generated lists related to lesson content; and ongoing, individualized self study using Membean online.
