I teach English IV, English EOC Enrichment, Lee College Dual Enrollment English 1301/02, and AP English Literature and Composition here at Kountze High School.
Keep in mind that this grading period is from October 5th to November 4th.
English IV Expectations: (2nd 6 weeks)
We will be reading Macbeth by William Shakespeare, and writing a thematically linked essay. This unit should take the entire grading period. In addition to this, we will continue to use a classroom calendar and complete warm-ups that cover analogies, critical thinking riddles, and editing.
English EOC Enrichment Expectations: (2nd 6 weeks)
We will continue adding material to our STAAR test study books. This unit is a combination of reading and writing, including journal topics, fiction passages with short answers, nonfiction passages with short answers, quotation research, and expository essay writing.
AP English Literature and Composition Expectations: (2nd 6 weeks)
We will be reading Macbeth and Hamlet by William Shakespeare, and writing essays and shorter pieces thematically linked to these literary works. In addition to this, we will complete two magazine exercises using The New Yorker, several components of Voice Lessons, parts of the AP study books, and a set of symbols and allusions.
