Welcome Students and Parents to the 2015-2016 School Year!  My name is Laurel Knaup and I have been teaching for over fifteen years.  I love literature, learning, and building relationships!  I will do my best to educate you on all of the Virginia Standards of Learning that will be covered in your 11th grade Reading and Writing SOL.  I will also work hard to introduce you to a wide variety of diverse writers from various cultural backgrounds, and discuss the contributions of diversity.   I will try to update this web-site once a week.  

If you should ever have questions, as a parent or student, do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or phone!  

All of my classes will begin reviewing the Plot Diagram, and have a Short Story Unit. Journals will be written in on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. They will count as a Test Grade, and are meant to HELP your average!! Please make sure you keep up with them.

I will try to keep homework to a minimal, but that means everyone needs to be alert, and involved in class everyday!

Please encourage your child to LOVE learning, and understand that every day is an OPPORTUNITY to grow. A student with a positive attitude is worth more than GOLD!!!

Thank you for your contribution!

Sincerely,

Ms. Knaup
