Falling in LOVE with Fall!

The classes have been going extremely well! In each course we have just finished up projects and are in the process of starting new units and/or projects.

English 11: This class has really embraced their class blog! We use it for assignments as well as blogging. The students seem to enjoy the ability to continue work at home and even just using technology has improved content and discussion. Currently we are working on College Resumes and Cover Letters and then we will be starting our next Unit: "A Growing Nation". With all this going on they still had time to create their own "Shortest Stories" like Ernest Hemingway- Flash Fiction. We used several examples in the October showcase.

English 12 TP: We are currently reading A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Solider and the class seems to really be enjoying this true life story. We are half way through the novel and upon finishing the novel the class will be watching Blood Diamond. Students should have brought home a bright blue permission slip! This class also just finished their "Professional Portfolio".

Speech: We are working on our last project speech: "The Persuasive Speech". The students will be in the computer lab all week and then next week they will be giving the speeches. Stay tuned on the Speech page for information and dates.
