English and Humanities

The English curriculum provides students with the opportunity to access the very best in programs developed to ensure success.  The role of the English department is to implement programs that are focused on the improvement of every students reading and writing skills needed to access all their subjects across the curriculum. 
At Mabel Park State High School we achieve this through engaging students in the Reading 2 Learn program.   The Reading 2 Learn program has been successfully implemented school wide, and is aimed at the improvement of not only reading and interpreting texts, but also encourages the improvement of written skills.  In addition, the curriculum also utilises the Accelerated Reader program designed at identifying individual students reading levels and improving these abilities to ensure all students achieve success. 
Furthermore, to ensure that students at Mabel Park State High School are not only successful in English but, indeed, across the Humanities curriculum, the English curriculum has been mapped to coincide with the History curriculum.  This results in students utilising skills within English and transferring those skills into history and vice versa.
