Engagement as a citizen, in a career, and as a lifelong learner, requires strong literacy skills, and English classes provide a deep foundation for students with reading, writing, listening, and speaking. English classes range from focusing on reading and understanding fiction and non-fiction text, conducting original research, and writing and speaking for a variety of audiences. Additionally, there are a number of courses that offer college credit as part of successful course completion through both Advanced Placement tests as well as through dual-credit with Oakton Community College.
The major goals of English classes are that students will be able, at various levels of skill development to…
- read with understanding and fluency
- understand the expressed meaning in literature representative of various societies, eras, and ideas
- write in order to communicate for a variety of purposes
- listen and speak effectively in a variety of situations
- use reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills to research and apply information for specific purposes.
Regardless of the course selected, students will have experiences leading them to the successful accomplishment of these five goals.
