• Welcome to Hallandale's English Department! Our goal for our students this year is to provide diverse instruction that facilitates rigorous aspects of reading and writing across Florida state standards. We hope to create a passion for reading with our students that will not only help them succeed in state exams, but give them the tools necessary to become passionate readers in life.
