The English Department is committed to developing the reading, writing, listening, speaking, research and critical thinking skills of all Boston Latin School students. We want all our students to be analytical readers who can decipher any text, however difficult; competent, creative writers who have mastered the various rhetorical structures as well as developed their own voices; attentive listeners who respect and can thoughtfully evaluate a wide range of ideas; articulate speakers who are comfortable in a variety of arenas; discriminating researchers who can effectively access reliable sources; and critical thinkers who are both logical and insightful.
The English Department offers a Writing Center for students who would like assistance with any step in the writing process. The center is open Tuesday through Thursday from 2:30 - 3:30 in room 308. Click here to sign up for the Writing Center.
