Using the study of literature, students will develop skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, research, and reflection. It is expected that through exposure to a wide variety of genres, teaching methods, activities, and research, students will develop a sense of belonging in the world around them.
Reading is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Like all language, it is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community which is culturally and socially situated. The reading process requires continuous practices, development, and refinement.
