Reading

The English department’s primary objective is to develop students into highly effective readers, writers, and thinkers. Classrooms are a cooperative environment where students are encouraged to lead discussions, discuss complex topics, and articulate their ideas. In each course, careful reading, thoughtful discussion, and regular formal and informal writing are expected. In the senior year, students have the unique option to take electives of their choice, including opportunities to write for the literary and art magazine, study classic adventure novels, delve further into Shakespeare, or study the process of turning novels into screenplays. Our program focuses on analysis and expression—the fundamental requirements for later success.

Suffield’s English curriculum teaches students to:
Write an effectively organized and thorough analytical essay in correct, standard English
Use acquired skills to analyze and interpret imaginative literature
Hone skills in writing, both analytically and creatively
Develop a thesis and defend it, orally and in writing
