Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! Below, you will find a summary of what is happening in each of the classes I teach.

The week of May 20 will be the final week of classes for the class of 2019.

English 10:  This week, students continued their creative writing unit by presenting their portfolios to the class. Next week, we will begin a unit on media bias.

English 9:
 This week, students studied the short story "The Necklace" with the focus at looking at how the author developed irony in the story. Next week, students will study The Legend of King Arthur.

British Literature: This week, students began a final British Literature short story project assignment. This will continue next week.

Contemporary Literature: This week, students completed their final story, "The Displaced Person". They will finish their quarterly novel next week.

Practical Writing: This week, students prepared a presentation for the class. Next week, they will begin a project looking at bias in the media.


War Literature: Students continued their final short story this week, "The Hanging Stranger".

 

Every Class, Every Day: 

Additionally, each day our class period begins with a "bellringer" activity. The students will complete an activity with the primary purpose of relating to informational text.

Please check your child's progress in my class through PowerSchool or Schoology. I update my grades in Schoology, as assignments are turned in. All grades in Schoology are current to the second. I sync my Schoology grades with PowerSchool weekly (every Thursday) if not more frequently. This is a great way to see how your child is performing in my classes as well as check if they have any missing work. 

If, at any time, you have questions or need assistance, please contact me at the phone number or email below. Email is the preferred method to use during school hours, so as not to interrupt class:
