Class Introduction

   Welcome to Freshman English!  This year you will read several short stories, novels, The Odyssey, and Romeo and Juliet.  You will also complete several writing assignments, including, but not limited to, narratives, informative essays, argumentative essays, analyses, and a research paper. Grammar will be included in bell work, as needed periodically throughout the year, and in the revision of several of your writing assignments.  Proper grammar and mechanics and the use of MLA format will be expected in all classwork this year.  I am here to help you succeed, so feel free to come visit me or to email if you have any questions.  Have a great year!
