English Department

Welcome to the English Department

Our language is a portal to our ideas. We use the English language to document our dreams and persuade others to see from our point of view.

At Farnsworth, the English department is a place for students to cultivate a sense of identity and personal power through the words of great thinkers, as well as their own. Advanced study in any field requires conceptual thinking and the subsequent articulation of those thoughts.

Please visit our 8th Grade Memoirs Blog: https://farnsworthmemoirs.home.blog/

Below are extra sites that have valuable resources for the units that students are studying in class. These include links to full length texts that we are reading, detailed directions and examples of our writing projects, and additional links to grammar and literature help.
