Welcome to my online classroom. This is where you will find all the necessary information and lesson information to be successful in my classes this year. I look forward to teaching your young ladies and gentlemen in the final years of their high school careers. On this page you will find valuable information on how to contact me, lessons being taught daily and weekly, as well as necessary materials for a successful school year. Below is a brief course description of the courses I teach.
AP Literature and Composition IV-The AP English course in Literature and Composition engages students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. Through the close reading of selected texts, students will deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for readers. As they read, students will consider work's structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. Students who take this course are strongly encouraged to take the AP Literature and Composition exam and are responsible for the AP exam fee.
CP English IV-This course helps students enhance strong oral and written skills that they can use in college and the workplace. Students will study English literature and apply their skills in writing literary analyses, literature-based compositions, research papers, and multimedia presentations. This class will help students prepare for the English and Reading portions of the ACT.
