• English Department Overview

    The Manasquan High School English Department provides students with an exciting,thought-provoking study of literature and language which stimulates their intellectual curiosity, develops critical thinking skills, fosters a love for reading and writing, and promotes an understanding of opposing ideas, beliefs,and cultures.  Through various literary genres the students refine their reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing skills.  As they perfect and apply these skills, they are preparing themselves for the challenges they will face as active, informed participants in a global community. This cohesive and sequential course of study begins with a survey of authors and literary genre and then delves into American Literature. Students engage in challenging analysis while increasing their reading experience and complete their literary studies with World Literature.  High-achieving juniors and seniors may take Advanced Placement English Language and Composition and Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition. Students may also pursue their interests through electives such as Journalism,Writing, Screenwriting, Film, and Acting.
