What a strange time we are living in. I'm apprhensive about starting the year remotely, yet at the same time I'm excited about learning how to teach in this new platform. I hope you're excited too. From experience with technology, I know we are all going to need to be patient with each other. Patience and a sense of humor, I think, are going to help us make the best of the circumstances. Everyday I plan on having content-rich assisgnments for you while also providing time for you to work independently. Some of the material will be new to you, and some of the material is intended to give you practice some skills you may already have. This is an English class, so I plan on giving you ample time to read and write during class.
We will use Zoom and GoogleClassroom. I will send the Zoom meeting code on the evening of Sunday, August 16, 2020.
Period 3 - Honors English 10
Intervention Pathway/Character Strong
Period 4 - English 10
I look forward to getting to know you and having you in my class this semester, and, parents/guardians, I look forward to communicating with you as often as possible.
You need to be prepared to read, write, think, and communicate everyday.We will focus extensively on expanding your writing skills. I consider this a language class, and we will study how to use language to communicate effectively. My goal is to have you leave my class an exceptional reader and writer. Your success in this language class is extremely important to me, and I hope that it is important to you, too.
Let's have a great year.
