MORE NEWS*** Beowulf Section is now on the Side Navigation part of the website. Copies of the notes form and the notes are there. The worksheets are also there. I will be adding assignments in the future.
Vocab 17 is up. We are beginning the Anglo/Saxon period and are reading "Beowulf". Try not to miss. This Epic Poem is in a class set of books. You might be able to check one out if you know you are going to be absent. You need to keep up with the pace of the class. Remember...Be Proactive!
If you are absent or if I have a sub, you will need to get the vocabulary words off of this website. Do not expect to be excused from taking the test. The words have been available. Be proactive! On Early Release Days we will not get the words in class, you will be expected to get them from the website.
When you cannot attend our class, you will find what you need to do by reading the Classwork and Classwork assignments section. I will try to keep this updated.
We are fully implementing the Common Core standards, and you will be reading and writing more than you thought. We plan to have you ready for college or the career of your choice by the time you graduate. Remember to "Begin With The End In Mind." Make everything you do draw you closer to graduation and a triuphant walk across that stage!
If you have suggestions on what needs to be included in this site, except the answers to the tests, of course, feel free to make those suggestions.
I am working on setting up the calendars and added the "next month" feature. I hope this will help you budget your time. We really need to work quickly before the holidays, so it will be really good if you can be in school everyday. If not, use this website. I plan to scan some of the work we will do in class and link those to the Homework tab. Perhaps, I will post the worksheets done in class. So, if you are absent, you can print them, work them, and turn them in when you get back. That way you will not get behind.
I find it a privilege teaching you this year. I trust we will have a great year! Work hard to make it your best year ever, and one to remember.
