New Goals and Expectations

This week each class is getting a dose of something new. It may be a new novel, a new idea or even a new project. Please visit each course page for more in depth descriptions and assignments.

English 11- Today students turned in their Literature Books and were handed novels! We began the background information about To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. We are visiting information about The Great Depression and Segregation. There will be a reading calendar and more information on the English 11 page.

Mythology- We are moving through Greek gods and goddesses. Chapter by chapter we are learning more about each Greek god/goddesses. Today we actually learned about Demeter and her daughter. We are also watching the History Channel's documentary called "The Greek Gods", it is very interesting. This will all lead up to a few projects and then a research paper/presentation.

Speech- Today we being our first round of speeches! "Speech of Introduction". If you would like to see when your student actually gives their speech and how they will be graded, check out the Speech page!
