English II Pre-AP, Yearbook, and Writing Skills

English II Pre-AP Class Work

We are embarking on an exciting group project this week, in which the students will work in groups of three and analyze Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech. By the end of the group work, they will have produced a presentation and will expertly teach their peers about the sections assigned to them.

Writing Skills

In writing skill, we have begun reading an incredibly interesting young adult novel called, "Al Capone Does My Shirts." It is about a young man who lives with his father, who works at Alcatraz in the 1930s. We will read and analyze this novel, and take quizzes with STAAR style questioning, and write several essays based on the themes in the book.

Yearbook

We are trucking right along on the yearbook. Our first major deadline is fast approaching, but we are on schedule to meet that deadline with wonderful spreads and stories. This is the best yearbook staff! Everyone is creative, hard-working, and proud of their accomplishments.
