Clearview Regional High School District develops its curriculum
in order to best serve the district’s mission and meet the subject-area
benchmarks established by The Common Core State Standards and other local, state and national
criteria for curriculum development. We recognize that adolescence through
young-adulthood is a time when students of the same age are at different
maturity levels, so the selection of materials is undertaken with care and
deliberation. The English Department selects literary texts that reflect a
diversity of perspectives, are age-appropriate, are high quality literature and
are useful to fulfill the district’s mission and the course’s benchmarks.
Parents are encouraged to investigate the texts explored by their children; we
urge parents to take an active role in helping our students to develop
admiration for the elegance and richness of human expression.
Recognizing that not all works are appropriate for all students, texts
identified with an (*) contain mature or sensitive language or issues; parents
or guardians may wish to preview texts prior to student participation.
