Campbell Hall High School English
High School English

Campbell Hall, founded in 1944 and situated on 15 naturally landscaped acres in North Hollywood, California, is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory, Episcopal day school for students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The high school division includes grades 9 -12 and is composed of approximately 540 students and 80 full- and part-time faculty and coaches.

The school is committed to fostering a community dedicated to honoring the diversity of the human experience, and is an Equal Opportunity Employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and creed, place of national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation or physical handicap.

Campbell Hall is guided by the Episcopal tradition of open inquiry and spiritual formation and seeks faculty who are devoted to the pursuit of academic excellence and to the nurturing of decent, loving, and responsible human beings.

Campbell Hall Faculty Description

Campbell Hall (K-12, coeducational, college preparatory, Episcopal) is seeking faculty who are dedicated to the developmentally appropriate education of the whole child; who are interested in learning as well as teaching; who connect their responsibilities with the philosophy and purpose of the school; who teach to empower as well as to inform; who are comfortable with questions as well as with answers; who can work with direction, focus, humor and dignity within the complexities of a diverse school environment; and who will be dedicated to promoting and maintaining an inclusive school community.

In addition to their academic responsibilities, Campbell Hall faculty are involved in many aspects of school life. Coaching interscholastic athletics, chaperoning experiential education trips, participating in community service activities, helping the students to produce school publications, overseeing student council, and leading a special interest club are just a few ways faculty are more deeply involved in the Campbell Hall community.

Each faculty member serves as a student advisor. An Advisor is dedicated to the emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth of each student. Faculty relate to students, parents and colleagues in ways which promote open and supportive communication.

Campbell Hall faculty pride themselves on becoming involved in many aspects of the school community. They are dedicated in their implementation of a vigorous college preparatory academic program and are equally devoted to the emotional and spiritual development of each student. The result is a community where students and adults are confident to learn and grow.

Responsibilities include the following:

Five classes to include a combination of English—most probably:

Ancient World Literature (9th grade)
Modern World Literature (10th grade)
Each class meets for 75 minutes every other day

High school advisor

Supervision duty (once per quarter/semester during lunch)

Monthly meetings include but are not exclusive to:

DAT (Deans, Advisors and Teachers)
English department
High school division
Experiential education trip chaperone (week-long, tent-camping trip)

Winter Prom and/or Senior Prom chaperone

All-school faculty staff meetings three times per year

English 9: Ancient World Literature and Composition: This class examines the enduring thematic and philosophical significance of the literature of early civilizations while building key writing and critical thinking skills. Through literature of both ancient and contemporary times, students examine the key ideas that form the basis of Western ethical, social, and cultural thought. Through a variety of writing assignments, students work on developing increasingly sophisticated thesis statements, generating thoroughly supported arguments, and constructing grammatically correct and intellectually compelling sentences. Works read include personal essays and poems, Othello, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Odyssey, and selections from the Bible.

English 10: Modern World Literature and Composition: In this course, students further develop an ability to comprehend and think critically about texts and to respond to literature verbally. Readings span Western European literature of the fourteenth through nineteenth centuries; the fourth quarter focuses on short stories from non-Western cultures as well. Students gain exposure to a wide range of genres (novels, plays, stories, and poems). To each text they apply components of literary analysis including plot, conflict, character, figurative language, and theme. Writing assignments include literary analysis, SAT essay practice, short stories, a screenplay written in collaboration, and a research paper. Students pursue writing as an active process by drafting and revising their essays. Research elements for several papers incorporate and encourage habits of effective information- gathering, note-taking, outlining, and citing primary and secondary sources. Students also refine their understanding of grammar and add to their working vocabulary. (Grade 10)
