The English curriculum challenges students to use literature as a tool for discovering, understanding, analyzing, and evaluating self, society, national identities, and global responsibilities. Over the course of four years of English, our students engage with a diverse body of texts, with each grade level approaching the study of literature through a specific lens:
- English 9 Discovering Self through Literature
- English 10 Understanding Society through Literature
- English 11 Analyzing American Identities through Literature
- English 12 Evaluating Global Responsibility through Literature
In addition to this broad study of literature, there is a structured scope of formal writing assignments across all four grade levels, with an emphasis on the research process and critical analysis.
