Jamie Kuratek English Department Head
Philosophies and Practices of the Nantucket High School English Department
The Nantucket High School English Department is committed in its philosophy and everyday practices to "developing students' oral language and literacy through appropriately challenging learning," as the state's English Language Arts Curriculum Framework says in its Guiding Principles. As English teachers, we are dedicated to helping our students find their voices and to teaching them the literacy skills they need to succeed and thrive in both their personal and professional lives, long after they leave our classrooms. To meet those goals, students in our classrooms will continue to refine their skills through speaking, listening, viewing, analyzing, reading, and writing.
