English/Language Arts

Become a highly qualified teacher in Secondary English Language Arts 6-12 at Judson College.

The-Secret-Garden-CoverThe English and Education departments at Judson value and promote active and collaborative study among faculty and students. For example, Dr. Chris Hokanson (English Dept. Head) and Dr. Gwen McCorquodale presented research on the “Enduring Relevance of The Secret Garden: 100 Years Later” at the Association of Childhood Education International Convention in Washington, D.C. At Judson, you’ll encounter many opportunities for collaboration with fellow students and faculty members.

In the Secondary English Language Arts teaching field, the American National Council of Teachers of English identifies five teaching categories: reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing.  In your work in the English Department and the Department of Education, you will learn how to combine the five skills of language arts in order to understand literature and its value and how to teach this most basic and most widely taught subject in American schools to students in grades 6-12.
