    Department Overview:
    The Lambert High School English Program prepares students to become independent learners who are proficient in writing, speaking, critical reading, listening, thinking, and viewing. Students use the language arts to explore and respond to classical and contemporary works from many cultures and literary periods. Throughout the curriculum, students are introduced to a variety of literature, including novels, short stories, plays, poems, and non-fiction.  They are expected to do an extensive amount of writing, including both creative and analytical essays. Class discussions and cooperative learning are major components of English classes, and all students are expected to participate fully.   Students at every grade level should expect to read literature that will challenge and engage them, to listen to and participate in class discussions and activities that will deepen their understanding of the texts, and to complete assignments designed to improve their writing skills and provide new insights into the works and topics they address.  With teacher guidance, students become responsible for their own learning; they increasingly assume leadership roles and make decisions in the classroom in order to develop interpretative and evaluative skills and make connections among their reading, their writing, and their lives.
