The Denison English Department is focused on the strength and possibility of all students.   Our department values curiosity and open classroom discussion.  We strive to aid our students in making collaborative decisions while working with peers.  Our students are challenged and encouraged on a daily basis to take responsibility for their learning and to achieve their fullest literacy potential. We believe in students voice and choice and encourage them to make decisions about which content interests them. Our department goals are to continue to offer content that is rich in culturally responsive and relevant pedagogies and to explore a wide range of texts for our students to see themselves reflected in the material.
 
English courses are designed using curricular guidelines and the overarching questions. Each grade builds on the skills learned in the prerequisite course, and aids to enhance students’ literacy acquisition.  Our goal is to offer courses that are both relevant and interesting to students.  ​
