English

Welcome to the English Department
The English / language arts program at Bosse High School develops proficient language users -- readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. It advances a foundation of effective learning tools (including new technology) that allows students to expand, discover, and gain knowledge and to work individually and cooperatively to become problem solvers. The program professes that the proper use of language forms the base upon which other learning occurs and that learning is more effective when connections are made between subjects studied and when knowledge is applicable to life. The English / language arts program, therefore, represents an integrated curriculum and encourages interdisciplinary instruction which challenges students to become life-long readers, writers, and learners. Although the English / language arts program stresses the importance of using standard English effectively, it also fosters respect for regional and multi-cultural differences within the English language and an appreciation of other languages and their contributions to a global society. Recognizing that education is the joint responsibility of the school, the home, and the community, the program reflects and influences the moral and ethical values of the community and enables and encourages children of all levels of ability to develop these values and to become productive members of society.
