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.



Have something with you that YOU CHOOSE to read (honors only)

We will be reading and writing every day!
