English Department


Sudbury Secondary School’s English Department is a dynamic experience for students of all levels.  The department’s teachers, passionate about their subject, not only engage their students through their own enthusiasm for English but through a multiple of teaching strategies.  These range from traditional lecture, question and answer, to differentiated instruction.  Additionally, teachers utilize SMARTBOARD technology and software to further enhance student learning.  The department’s class sets of literature, as well as an extensive collection of single copy contemporary novels and non-fiction, form the core of its reading-based philosophy.  It is the belief that involved and sustained reading generates the necessary ideas for committed writing.  A Shakespearean play is taught at each of the tow academic and university grades.  At the university levels students are encouraged to choose their independent study novels fro the winners and short-listed writers of Nobel, Man Booker, Pulitzer, Governor General, and Giller literary awards.  Sudbury Secondary’s close proximity to the Sudbury Theatre Centre, a short 15 minutes, also provides opportunities for intellectual engagement for all grades.


In conjunction with the Social Science Department the English Department has organized two trips to the Sudbury Theatre Centre.  This past Fall students had an opportunity to see “How it Works” by Daniel Maclvor.  Moreover,  this upcoming Spring students will by able to see a play by Sudbury’s own award-winning playwright Matthew Heiti.  It will be a play called “Black Dog: 4 vs the World” about teen life.
