Welcome! I am excited to begin our year together and to work towards becoming stronger thinkers, braver writers, ambitious readers and meaningful members of our school and our global communities. In order to do this, we will focus on the following goals:-Engage in close reading of a text-Identify and examine the role of literary devices in a text-Provide textual evidence to support a claim-Strive to become clear, confident, and engaging analytical, persuasive and creative writers-Make connections to the text we read to help us enjoy it!-Broaden vocabulary and improve grammar-Have an excitement and passion for learning!
That being said- I hope to have a FUN year together and to create a space where you feel comfortable expressing yourself. I want you to feel challenged, learn new things, advocate for yourself, share your ideas, be willing to be flexible and understanding, and most of all be happy when in room 110.Please see my NEW, UPDATED website by clicking here- Freedom English
