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
