English I

Course Description

 Welcome to your first year of high school English!  We have an exciting year planned full of reading some classic literature and expanding our writing skills!  Throughout the year, we will be exploring different types of literature -- from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451! We will also be experimenting with different writing techniques and styles, with an explicit focus on expository writing.  
Students receive handouts with specific dates as well as verbal reminders and dates written on the board/calendar located in classroom. It is highly recommended for students to create a system that works for them to help them stay on top of due dates!
Please note on grading policy -- late policy is strictly enforced!
