English II Honors
Announcement: This will be my last week of full time teaching. Beginning next Monday, Mrs. Chapman will take over literature while I continue with grammar and vocab. By the end of next week, Mrs. Chapman will be the lead teacher once again, and I will be observing and finishing grading.
Literature: We will be continuing our study of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House. Our focus for this unit will be on gender roles, marriage norms, and relationship roles during the Victorian period, and how they compare to modern times. This week we will be analyzing power structures in relationships, and how these structures effect characters. Friday will conclude the unit with a RAFT writing assignment that your student will complete.
Vocabulary: Vocabulary has been posted on the website, and there will be a test on Friday.
Grammar: We started subject/verb agreement notes today. There will be a grammar quiz on Thursday, but it will be a short quiz.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
