English Department

The English Department at Chaminade Middle School embraces a belief in the fundamental power of language to define, shape, and enrich lives. In today’s climate of instant information, critical language competencies and thinking skills empower students to discern the credible, the reasonable, and the valuable. The successful language skills curriculum, therefore, must build upon traditional foundations of grammar and composition to provide students with the tools to discover "truth" in an information-saturated society and the skills to communicate clearly as effective citizens.

In addition, the literature curriculum must maintain a broad, inclusive canon that recognizes the realities of an ethnically diverse population without abandoning classic literary selections. Through an intensive reading, writing, speaking, and listening program, the department provides students with a solid body of knowledge and critical thinking skills. The program offers students the opportunity to confront important human issues, and to develop a strong sense of personal, social, and aesthetic values.
