WELCOME BACK!


The English Language Arts Department's philosophy is that through the critical study of language, and by looking at the literary contributions of those who have lived before us throughout the world, students may better understand and contribute to the world they live in.  Ultimately, language is an essential means by which students explore and understand the "text" of  their own lives as well as the lives of others.  We seek to empower students to be life-long readers, writers, speakers, listeners, and critical thinkers.  The South Kingstown High School Student Leaning Expectations, the Rhode Island Grade Span Expectations, and the national Common Core of State Standards are integral to achieving this goal.  Our purpose is to enable all students to develop the skills necessary to become effective communicators in our global community, and to use language fluently in all of its forms to enhance their lives.
