Literacy is, perhaps, one of the most important skills students will ever obtain, thus the English Department is focused on raising the literacy level of Handley students. Additionally, we are committed to helping students raise the level of vocabulary, both in speaking and writing. Our writing is primarily focused on persuasive, analytical, and expository writing.
Project Based Learning and Digital opportunities are afforded students in the English Language Arts class as well.
