• The Eden Prairie High School English Department believes in the power of reading.  We will engage our students as readers in order to promote critical thinking, expand background knowledge, and explore what it means to be human.  To reach these goals, we will provide a wide range of reading experiences, encourage rigorous literary discourse and analysis, and help students develop their identities as independent readers.  We will offer choice and access to a variety of genres, perspectives, and cultures to create a community of learners.
    Detailed information for each of the English courses offered at EPHS (including Course Descriptions, Prerequisites, and Essential Learning Targets) can be found on the ENGLISH COURSES page.
