Mrs. Wortman's English III Class

8/30 Weekly Update

A Little About Me

Welcome back to school! My name is Lauren Wortman, and I will be your child's Junior English teacher. I am a 2007 graduate of NC State's Teaching Fellows program. I am originally from Sanford, NC; my husband and I moved to Shelby four years ago, and we love it here! I look forward to working with you this semester. Please don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything I can do for you.


What's Going On in Class?

We're off to a great start! The students have been learning about Puritans in preparation for our reading of The Crucible next week. They got their vocabulary list, we practiced building a convincing argument, and today (Friday) we will assemble the Interactive Student Notebooks.



Parents, you may have noticed your child doing homework after school. I do give homework fairly often. The students have an article of the week due today, and they'll get another one next week. You should also expect to see some vocabulary homework at some point next week.
