    Things We Say Which We Owe to Shakespeare English Department

    Department Chair: Mr. Trevor Drake

    The purpose of Conestoga’s English curriculum is to provide continued, concentrated instruction in written composition and oral communication, and literature studies:

    Written Communication: The goal of instruction in composition is to help students develop confidence in their ability to express ideas effectively in writing. A research component is part of yearlong courses.

    Oral Communication: Every student engages in a number of speech activities during each course.

    Literature: In addition to thoughtful, critical analysis of literature, a major goal of the literature program is to acquaint students with their global literary heritage.
