Welcome to my class! I have high expectations for every student who walks into my classroom, so be ready to work. This class will focus on writing, reading, language, grammar, and analysis of works read. Students must be prepared to spend a significant amount of time outside of class studying, researching, reading, and writing. NOTE: Some of the texts we will be reading this semester will deal with difficult and possibly controversial issues. If your parent/guardian has any questions or concerns about the texts assigned, please make sure they contact me.
