Welcome to English. In this class you will learn about the different types of literature. You will focus on learning how to read fiction and nonfiction literature. Another part of this class will be to practice writing good sentences, paragraphs, and reports. You will also learn new words and how to use these words in your everyday speech and your writing. Come to class ready to improve your reading!
A big part of English will be to practice the skills needed for the new Common Core standards. There will be new vocabulary words used and new ways of looking at the words on the page. You will be expected to look for evidence of your answer; this means you must support your answers with something from the narrative (story).
