English Department Mission Statement
The mission of the English Department at Glassboro High School is to enable students to develop the literacy skills necessary to communicate effectively in the media-rich environment of the modern American economy. These skills, identified by the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (2017), include the ability to read closely and effectively, to analyze and compare complex texts, to understand and appreciate a variety of literary genres, to view the national and local media with a critical and informed eye, and to express oneself artfully and compellingly. Students will recognize the power of words and learn to craft their own as they become thoughtful, productive, literate citizens of the 21st century.
