• The Streamwood High School English program is a four-year sequence that allows students to be actively-engaged, thinking persons in a complex, dynamic world. The Common-core-based curriculum, offers an opportunity for students to develop their language skills through courses that are challenging but commensurate with their abilities. All English teachers emphasize the development of the skills of disciplined reading, analysis, and discussion, as well as mastery of the various forms, styles, and techniques of writing. Students will empathize with many, disperate facets of the human experiences, and understand how language conveys, the mind, the person, and moment.
