English Department

The English Department at Thornhill Secondary is constantly trying to create curriculum that is innovative, exciting and appeals to all students. Since our student population is filled with a variety of interests, we have created compulsory and elective courses that appeal to many of the students’ interests. We are proud to say that the Grade 11 Open Media Course has been quite successful as it focuses on the different elements and components of media.  The Grade 11 Presentation and Speaking Skills Open Course enables students to examine and use the various skills necessary to present and speak effectively.  Also, Writers’ Craft (12 University) is also popular with its workshop environment for students to creatively manipulate language and read each other’s work.  

Department members are committed to providing students with quality instruction that encourages them to become critical thinkers and problem-solvers. Our focus is on student-centered learning and other differentiated learning strategies.  In addition, we strive to develop and maximize student learning skills and work habits by emphasising process and awareness of learning through metacognitive assessment.
