Getting Ready for Freshman English!
While there are general criteria for recommending students, we believe that each student is capable of learning and growing beyond current levels. The following tips can be helpful to anyone looking to make the most of their Freshman English experience:
- Read different types of books and texts (maybe even some that are not so easy for you)
- Start writing------Start a blog, write in a journal. Use social media to express important ideas and opinions (in a nice, respectful way that helps you to represent your thinking and who you are in a positive way). Do something crazy and sit down and write a hand-written letter to someone who is important to you in some way. Write down what you want your life to look like in 1, 5, and 10 years----it's your writing and imagination---- the sky is the limit!!
- Think about when and where you will do schoolwork at home and how you might organize yourself
- Talk to friends and family about their ideas on reading and writing-- sharing is always a great idea
