Hey, folks!  Imagine that you're walking into our classroom right is playing...I'm waiting for you up're ready to bring your best for another sixty minutes.  Well, things have changed a little, haven't they?

First thing to note: I haven't posted any actual work today because I figured you'd already be feeling a little overwhelmed...on TOP of being isolated!  Let's ease into things, OK?

To give you an idea of the direction we'll be taking, English 9 and 10 will be expected to do a little reading and a little writing each week.  Pretty decent, right?  English 121, we will pick up sort of where we left off: we're going to complete an annotated bibliography, because chances are VERY good that you'll have to do them in your post-secondary studies and your profs may not take the time to show you how.  Then, we'll leave things a little more open-ended, and a little more creative.

I hope you are all healthy and happy and hunkered down.  Remember, you can email me any time at, or (if your class is set up) you can use Teams to contact me (and each other!).

Check back tomorrow for the next baby step in this venture we're taking together.  I really, really miss you birds.

-Mrs. Corlett

Thank you so much for suggesting the MadLib for today's writing prompt.  I'm sure Bradley and Aaron will be very happy together...  Today, we began our next essay assignment - for this one, you'll be working in pairs, and take turns selecting either an analysis or opinion essay for you and your buddy to dismantle.  No due dates yet!

We missed all of our drama folk today...but we could hear the kids cheering all the way down the hallway!  There is an Article of the Week for you in the folder (due Thursday), and you have a Reflection due on Friday.  Also, remember your non-fiction novel study (which includes your novel notes and 5BQ) are due May 8.

Great job today presenting YOUR take on Act 1...especially where the star-crossed lovers realize they cannot be together.  We had everything from JMH & MV to Donald Trump & a Mexican woman! Tomorrow, we'll tackle the prologue to Act 2 (another sonnet!), then we'll get to the balcony scene.

English 9 - periods 1 and 6 - we finished the play today, then tried to determine who you thought was MOST responsible for Romeo and Juliet's fate.  Be prepared to write your test tomorrow!

English 9 - period 2 - Hopefully, you were able to select a novel today for your novel study.  You'll choose your packet tomorrow!

English 121 - Today, you were assigned an additional "on-your-own-time"  novel study.  You must select a classic, then (after reading it and making copious novel notes) write a one-page literary essay to prove that the novel you selected either should or shouldn't be considered a classic.  The guidelines for a literary essay are included on the assignment page, taken directly from your Grade 12 Standards document.  Due date is Friday, May 19.

English 9 - Periods 1 and 6 - Terrific work with Act 1...our star cross'd lovers have finally met!  What's next?  We'll complete some in-class activities this week as we continue reading in Act 2.

English 121 - This week will be dedicated to establishing your theses for the essay you have selected to write.  Remember, ALL parts of the process must be handed in with your final copy next Wednesday, April 19.  These include the plan/outline (vetted by a peer and Mr. Hache or Mrs. Corlett), your edited draft, your final copy, and the rubric we co-created.  In addition, your Article of the Week is due on Thursday.
