• Welcome to Grade 10 English!! I truly am looking forward to a good semester together. Yes, we will be reading, writing, and thinking, which may not sound like a lot of fun to you, but I will try to keep things at least a little bit interesting. ;-) The focus of sophomore English is American literature. Some of the works we read will be more interesting to you than others, and some will be easier for you to read than others, but through it all, the most important thing will be the sharpening of your skills. The ability to read critically, to communicate effectively, and to work independently and collaboratively will benefit you not only as a student, but as a person. Together, we will work to improve your proficiency in these areas.

  • English 10 uses American Literature as a foundation for learning. We will examine works of American authors from the past and the present and try to recognize "what makes them tick." Why is the past so important to writers? Along the way, we will try to apply the thinking skills and the mechanical skills of the "masters" to our own compositions, so that we leave the course as better writers and thinkers.
