WELCOME TO THE BBCHS ENGLISH DEPARTMENT

 

Our Mission

 The mission of the BBCHS English Department is to promote literacy--specifically the ability to read, write, speak, and think critically.  This mission includes the fostering of such technological literacy as information retrieval, research, and communication.  Students will learn to gather, analyze, and communicate information effectively as well as think creatively and draw independent conclusions.  The Department fosters this goal through scholarship and instruction in all areas of literature written in English and in the works produced by the students utilizing a wide variety of media and technology.

 

MESSAGE FROM THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR: Jill Fightmaster
