Class today was abreviated by picture day. After we finished taking photos, students helped us learn their names, talked about the policy on personal electronic devices for the year, and studnets signed up for Remind.com reminders. Each class has a separate code/login page: A3, A4. Next week, I will check to see who has signed up and will give you a grade for doing so (and a zero if you fail to).
This class is an opportunity for students to develop and practice their skills in reading and analysis of literature as well as writing. Our various texts will be the vehicles through which they will hone their critical thinking abilities, and our writing exercises will be an outlet of expression for these abilities. We will be reading poetry, short fiction, novels, and dramatic texts. Our objectives are to master the elements of literature, practice the writing process, and improve organization of writing.
