Here on my Teacher Connection page you will find information about the three courses I teach: English I Honors, English II and English II Honors. Please read closely to be certain you are reading the information for your specific class. I will update this page regularly to keep you up-to-date with deadlines and assignments, and to share useful information that will help you become the most successful student you can be. Trust me, English is an important course, one that will provide you with many valuable skills. Language Arts is the art of communication, and no matter what path you choose in life, you will need to communicate in some way, shape or form. I look forward to helping you shape your future.
CLASSROOM DONATIONS: 'Tis the season! The sneezing and sniffling has begun. If you have the means to help out with the need for tissues in my classroom, I would greatly appreciate your tissue donation. Please send a box in with your student to help us make him/her and their classmates more comfortable as they battle allergies and germs. Thank you in advance!
Every quarter students will read one book independently and complete a Literacy Project (projects will vary and students will have the opportunity to choose the kind of project they wish to complete from a list of ideas provided by me. This is a VCHS project and it is a requirement for all students. Please remember to bring your book with you to class each day. Students will be given time to read during class when time allows. Specific project details will be discussed soon in class and posted here on the Teacher Connection page.
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.
