ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The English Language Arts Department serves the students of the West Babylon Junior High School by instructing courses in English, Reading, Academic Intervention and E.S.L. The ELA department works consistently to improve instruction and develop new and innovative approaches that meet the needs of all students.
In all our courses, teachers work with students to develop and strengthen their critical thinking, reading and writing skills and share their enjoyment of literature. Students read a variety of novels, poems and short stories to deepen their appreciation of literature and strengthen their understanding of the English language.
