English/Language Arts

The goal of the Grand Haven High School Language Arts department is to help students to be involved, to be willing to learn and to share what they have learned, and to both be willing to take the risk of voicing opinions and listen to the opinions of others.  We strive for each student to refine critical thinking skills, draw conclusions, and express him/herself through both verbal and written forms of communication.  As teachers of literacy, we hope that all students will grow to enjoy literature and informative texts, and make both a part of their lives as a source of recreation and learning.  We encourage students to move beyond the literal meaning of texts for greater understanding and to be aware of different philosophies and genres of literature. Most of all, we hope to instill a connection between the subjects that are studied and each student’s life.
