Knox English classes give students the opportunity to read widely, think deeply, and communicate clearly. In every English classroom, you will find our students actively engaged in writing responses to a text, as well as vigorously discussing the nuances of what they read in terms of literary elements and personal connections. It is here that students learn how to listen respectfully to different opinions, as well as to express their own perspectives with clarity and logic. Throughout all Knox English courses, students are taught to support their written and spoken arguments with convincing evidence. The development of a strong and disciplined mind is the best way we can prepare our students for the rigors of college as well as the challenges they will face in higher education and beyond.
