The 2021-2022 school year has begun. I am looking forward to a wonderful year filled with exciting and enriching assignments and activities. We will be enhancing our critical reading skills through annotating contemporary published essays, novels, etc... We will also conduct Socratic seminars and analyze and evaluate our readings through dialectic journals. Of course we will be advancing our writing skills through the advanced writing process. Additionally, we will complete units from the official College Board Pre-AP program, SpringBoard, focusing on the state standards. Throughout the year, we will be preparing for the End of Course test (LEAP 2025) and the PLAN test / ACT test. As you can see, we will be working very hard to achieve our desired success.
This is a rigorous class and requires students to maintain a positive and strong work ethic.
PLAN / ACT will be given in April.
EOC/LEAP WILL BE GIVEN IN EARLY MAY. DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED (This counts for 15% of final grade.)
NOTE TO PARENTS: Due to the depth and expanse of the content of this class, often modifications to benefit the students are made to the posted lesson plans. Therefore, if your child is absent, please have him or her ask for missed assignments upon his or her return either before school, at the beginning or end of class, or after school. Also, due to the involved and complex assignments, grading generally takes longer.
SUPPLIES NEEDED for English classes: These are to be replenished throughout the school year as needed.

- wide ruled loose-leaf paper
