Our 21st Century students need to be able to use language with skill, confidence and flexibility. Collegiate’s English teachers help students develop the oral communication, reading, writing and media literacy skills that are necessary for success in high school and in their daily lives. We provide students with quality instruction that encourages them to become critical thinkers, effective communicators and problem solvers. Our courses provide opportunities for students to improve their writing and to become critical consumers of media and texts. Students are encouraged to develop a lifelong passion for reading through the various texts covered in each of our courses as well as through our Student and Teachers are Reading Together (START) program which allows students time to read anything they would like.
Students increasingly become critical consumers of texts--they question texts and assess their validity, express opinions, support their opinions with sound arguments, evidence from the text and from their prior experiences, and they transform texts when the messages contained disadvantage groups of people.
