We are getting ready for our drama unit.  The ninth grade will be reading "Pyramus and Thisbe," A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Romeo & Juliet while the tenth grade will be reading Julius Caesar.  We will still be practicing close reading strategies and actively working on our grammar and vocabulary skills. 

 

Teacher Office Hours:

Monday - Thursday 7 - 7:35 am

Tuesday - Friday 2:45 - 3:30 pm 

Students are encouraged to take charge of their learning and see me to schedule time to review material that they could use additional help with. Students should NOT wait until the day before an important assignment is due or a quiz is scheduled. Part of being a successful student is the need to be an organized and prepared learner.   

 

Literacy Project

Every quarter students will read one book independently and complete a literacy project or essay. This quarter's assignment can be found on Moodle and is due by December 12th.

 A sample MLA formatted paper is available to you through the following link on the VCS Media Center's page.  This sample paper was provided by Lake Sumter State College.  Please review this prior to submitting any essays. MLA format is a requirement.  

Another wonderful writing resource is the Purdue Online Writing Lab, also known as the Purdue OWL.  I will refer to this site in class often.  Click here to access the site.
