An Exploration of Reading and Writing
Critical thinking, imagination, and guided exploration of literary works and genres will comprise the foundation for learning in the Marist English Department. Students will demonstrate a precise understanding of writing as a process involving conception, reflection, support, and revision. Through vocabulary and writing instruction, students will refine and expand their use of language. Students will use discussion as a means of individual expression through which they will raise and critically examine issues pertinent to their intellectual, spiritual, and psychological development.
