Welcome to English 2 and English 4. Everyday you need to be prepared to READ, WRITE, and REFLECT. We will do most of our assignments in google classroom, so knowing your login information is really important. Checking my website and google classroom everyday, especially when you're absent, is a necessary habit to form.
English 2 is a full year course with a STAAR exam in the Spring, so we will be working on building those skills so that sucess can occur. This class is not accelerated nor self-paced, so be prepared for DIRECT TEACHING all year long.
English 4 is an accelerated class, but it is not self-paced. Each semester will be finished in 6 weeks and consists of reading 1 book on your own but, with a specific focus. There will be 4-6 notebook checks, tests, as well as successful completion of Texas College Bridge.
