Ms. Cassandra Sherburne « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

We are currently working on a short story unit.  We are reading a variety of stories by various authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Amy Tan, and Chinua Achebe.  While reading, we are practicing close reading strategies.  We are also actively working on our grammar and vocabulary skills.

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 October 3rd.

 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.
