English Department

The Westwood Regional English department curriculum teaches students to read closely, think critically, challenge assumptions, practice methods of interpretation and research, analyze the formal qualities of texts, approach texts from various perspectives, place texts in various contexts, and write with clarity, coherence, and precision. As students progress through the course sequence, they will engage in increasingly sophisticated and elaborate writing and analytic tasks and be called upon to perform more original, inventive, independent work.

Our teachers use a variety of approaches and resources to engage students in the work being undertaken and to foster an intellectual environment.
