It is a pleasure, on behalf of the English Department, to welcome you to BCSM. Cultivating strong reading habits is the key to becoming a successful student in all subject areas. Reading provides an opportunity to practice an essential skill that will not only increase your general knowledge, but also expand your knowledge of people and the world in which you live.
These are not your typical English classes. Here at Bronx Center, we will learn to read through the eyes of writers, and write as readers do. You will learn these skills in a “workshop” setting, which is similar to the way that your classes were probably structured in middle school. However, be prepared to work hard. We expect great things from you!
We understand that the transition from middle school to high school can be a difficult one both academically and socially, so please feel free to seek us out for any additional support that you may need. We look forward to getting to know you!
