Welcome to English! I am very excited to start a new year and meet all of my new students. We will have a very exciting year together exploring American literature, expanding our understanding and use of technology as a tool for productivity, and exploring the possibilities opened up to us when we read and write for pleasure. Please come to class ready to learn!
AP students- We will be learning about the art of rhetoric this year, so be prepared to read a lot of non-fiction- starting with your choice novel for the summer. Any topic is fine, but please choose a book that has an author (not an encyclopedic anthology). Memoirs can be a good choice for the summer, but any topic is fine. Be prepared to share your reading in the first days of class.
Honors students- We will use summer reading as a launch into literary analysis. Please think about the story elements of your choice book before the first few days of class.
REQUIRED EVERY DAY FOR CLASS:
Have something with you that YOU CHOOSE to read (honors only)
We will be reading and writing every day!
*Folder or binder (for notes/handouts, etc.)
*Fully Charged laptop (provided)
*class calendar and/or reading schedule-(provided) given throughout the school year
