Courses in English will focus on students developing an understanding of their values and their society so they might discover how to situate themselves in a dynamic and increasingly complex modern world. To facilitate this exploration, courses will center on careful examination of literature that both initiates and aids the development of these insights.
The department recognizes that a student must master a variety of language skills if he is to participate successfully in our society. Among these skills is the ability to read critically, to interpret logically, and to communicate effectively in both oral and written expression. Throughout their career at Boys’ Latin, students will learn how to communicate through various forms of written and oral language and read works representing diverse voices and experiences.a
