English

Department Head: Mr. David Crowe

The S.C. English department offers a wide range of courses to meet the needs, abilities, and interests of diverse learners.

In grades 9 and 10, students can take locally developed, applied or academic level English. In grades 11 and 12, the department offers essential, college, or university level English courses. Additionally, Advanced Placement (AP) English courses are offered at the grade 11 and 12 levels, offering a pathway for students who are looking for additional challenges and variety in literature studies.

New in the 2020-2021 school year, our Grade 11 courses have become Contemporary First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Voices and Perspectives in English (NBE3E, NBE3C, and NBE3U). These courses provide students with the key analytical literary and writing skills needed for grade 12 while exploring new voices and perspectives.

For the 2020-21 school year, as we proceed with quadmesters, students will have the opportunity to access extra help on their at-home days by accessing our Departmental Google Hangout meetings. Each day, a teacher from the department will be online and available for students to ask questions and get help with their English courses. The link to the Google Meet is available from the student's classroom teacher.

 

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers."
