The English Department supports the development of strong reading, speaking, and writing skills. We provide the skills students need to confidently read and interpret challenging texts, both classic and modern. Students expand their ability to speak critically through thoughtful class discussion. They also develop a personal writing style through extensive written work. We enrich our overall curriculum by implementing various types of media and technology instruction where appropriate. All of these allow an NDA graduate to reach her greatest potential in English.
In this club, students seek to educate and expand their horizons about aspects of British culture using technology and literature. Students read, chat and study literature, movies and music, as well as current event topics related to Britain. Student use technology such as Skype and email to contact Notre Dame schools in England.
