English Department Mission Statement
The East Brunswick English Department is dedicated to preparing all students for life after high school. Reading and writing about literature and language are increasingly important as students develop the sophisticated skills of analysis and interpretation. By the time they complete their senior year, students have read and discussed significant works of literature as well as many works of non-fiction. Our comprehensive English curriculum is designed to develop independent readers, writers, and critical thinkers.
We hope to foster a love of reading and appreciation for good writing; furthermore, we want our students to better understand their commitment to being effective readers and writers. Our classroom environments are engaging, educationally sound and literacy-rich. In our student-centered classrooms, we guide our students to view themselves as critical communicators and help them develop their voice so they can become active participants in global, economic, and social issues.
