The English Department has been
working hard in the junior grades to prepare students for the OSSLT and to
provide them with the skills and experiences that they need to excel when they
enter the senior level English Courses.
We continue to offer students a
variety of tasks that allow them to demonstrate their skills in a many
different ways. Many of our teachers use Brightspace which is an online
learning platform that allows students to learn outside of the confines of the
classroom without physically leaving it. This blended learning model
allows students to receive in-class instruction and then apply it in a variety
of digital contexts.
Our senior courses continue to
challenge our students and prepare them for their eventual entry into either
the workplace, college, or university. Students are challenged with both
classic and contemporary literature and use these texts as the foundation for
deeper explorations of themselves and the world that is around them.
All students are encouraged to
check the postings that are outside of the room 2011 to see the latest writing
contests and opportunities.
