The Gull Lake high school English department did not make any drastic changes but did make some minor changes to improve the department.
The biggest changes are going to occur in the following school year. The teachers are trying to get online textbooks for all of the English classes. In the 2013 school year, the English department will have common tests, quizzes and exams in all of the same courses.
The department received a new teacher, Becky Calvert. The teachers are trying to get the new technology of the iPads more involved in everyday class.
Overall there are not that many new things happening any time soon in the English department but some small changes will be made. The teachers are attending conferences, learning more about technology affiliated with English and literature.
