The English Language Arts curriculum surveys several popular and thought-provoking themes for increasing reading skills. Vocabulary, grammar, and textbook materials develop reading and writing skills which will promote success on NJ State Testing. Units and materials are arranged so that the student can understand, as well as enjoy, what he/she reads. Attention is also given to literary elements, various literary genres, research paper writing, cooperative learning and writing assignments which are geared to the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA). Written and digital composition, internet research, and discovering library resources are other activities which are also utilized. Developing academic rigor, student-centered initiatives, high level thinking skills, and intellectual curiosity is stressed.

 

In Advanced Level courses, due to limited enrollment and highly selective standards, once a student makes a decision to enroll, that student will not be permitted to drop the course. Previous English teacher recommendations are necessary for admittance into the Advanced course.
