English/Language Arts

MissionStatement:

To establish in every student a foundation of skills in reading critically, thinking analytically, and writing effectively.   We recognize that our students are members of an increasingly complex society, and, as such, they must become effective communicators and insightful interpreters of all kinds of texts.  Throughout their course of study in English at TMHS, our students will be asked to practice methods of interpretation and research, analyze formal qualities of text, foster technological literacy, craft effective arguments, and write with clarity, coherence, and precision.
