Welcome to the 2014/2015 School Year! I am excited to be working with all of you! Please not that for the first few weeks of English 9 & 10 we will be reviewing The Plot Diagram. I have also included the elements of Short Stories.
Each class will participate in Group Activities, Introduction of The Circle Map, Read, and Discuss several Short Stories. We will use the Plot Diagram as the skeleton of the short story.
Vocabulary will include: Exposition, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Resolution, Conflict, Setting, Plot, Character...
Students will also review the rules of Capitalization, and Punctuation.
Creative Writing will be Reading, and Discussing favorite pieces of Literature. Creating a "Writing Collage" and writing about it. Analyzing what makes a writer...
All of this is just a brief over view of the next two weeks. I will post documents that pertain to class. If you have questions or comments please e-mail me.
Thanks for the donations of tissues and expos!!
What a great group of students!!
