English I Career and College Ready: Updates


Honors English I

We are finishing The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society and Unit 2.  We culminate Unit 2 with The Odyssey. We will be reading Lord of the Flies, next. 


English I

We are reading Between the Lines.  We continue to combine elements of Unit 1 and Unit 2 together.  We are currently reading the short story, "The Stolen Party" and the poem "Fire and Ice." 


Honors Students - 1st Period 

Review or reread We Were Liars.  We will have class discussions.  You will write a literary analysis essay on the novel.  It helps to annotate or flag material within the novel. 

Be sure you have your course materials on day one of class. See the Honors English I website.


All sections should use USA Test Prep for review.  The students know how to access personal data.  Students should work on weak areas to prepare for exams.

In addition, Honors Students need to complete CommonLit Informational Text assignments, which are accessible through Google Classroom. 


See note about Google Classroom on Course pages.


Honors English 1 and English I Career and College Ready Introduction

DBL.png Welcome to Honors English 1 or English I Career and College Ready! The course runs through Google Classroom; get connected. Information concerning Google Classroom comes home with the student on the first day of class.  Homework typically consists of studying notes, reading, and sometimes, finishing classwork.  It usually does not exceed thirty minutes per night.  Sometimes, we do have homework on the weekend like reading a chapter of our novel and completing two-column notes.  The expectations rank very high in Honors English 1 and English I Career and College ready.  Together Everyone Achieves More! I look forward to partnering with you on your educational journey.
