Science Fiction/Fantasy Class

Today we assigned "We Need a Hero". This is due Friday, September 4 in class. I can't accept late papers because we will be sharing and you will get points for giving feedback to your peers. Next time in class, we will be learning more about the Arthurian legend.

The Once and Future King was issued to students. They will have about three weeks to read their section of the book. I have an assignment they will get on Wednesday and we will decide in class when it is due.

Junior Honors Update

Congratulations on surviving your Three Cups of Tea test. Now that we have that out of the way, we can get on with Of Mice and Men. If you haven't turned in your summer assignment, please talk to me. There will be a timed write and a brief multiple choice test next time in class.

Sophomore English Information

First and Fourth Periods - Your test on Three Cups of Tea is on Friday. The best way to study for the test is to take about two minutes and quickly review each chapter with a friend. You don't need to know picky details, but you should have a general ideal of what went on in the book and what message the book has for humanity.

Don't forget to bring back your disclosure and a spiral notebook for starters, too.

Just a little general information...

I'm excited to be your teacher this year. I am a National Board Certified Teacher and have earned my Master’s of Arts in Teaching. This is my eighth year teaching Language Arts at Riverton High School and if I have taught a sister, brother, cousin or neighbor of yours in the past, I promise not to hold it against you. There are honestly days that I can’t believe I get paid for what I do. Of course, there are other days that make up for that, but that is the beauty of teaching.

This year, if you are absent, you can check the blog for information on what you have missed and what is coming up. If you need information, you can check the blog. If you need more information, please email me.

As I get a little more experienced with blogging, I hope to put pictures of class activities here so you can show your parents what you have done in school. This is the year I embrace technology!

Welcome back to school. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.
