English Language Arts 10 is a required graduation diploma examinable course. 

Our English language arts program cultivates the effective use of reading/writing, speaking/listening, and viewing/visually representing so that students learn to clearly understand and communicate ideas and beliefs in serving God and others. 

English 10 also has a particular focus on Canadian literature which integrates well with Socials 10.  The students will study Canadian short stories and poetry as well as thematic units on First Nations and immigration literature.  These units provide students with the opportunity to explore the various faces of Canadian identity and also foster a respect for the Canadian arts.  The students will also study the great British classics:  George Orwell's Animal Farm and Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
