English 9/The Learning Center
This year you will read many memorable literature selections,
improve your writing skills, and become a better
reader and thinker.
This week (5/13- 5/17):
(1) Vocabulary Ch. 23 this week - exercises due Thursday;
(2) Reading Chapters 3 and 4 - Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Coming up next week:
Finish reading Of Mice and Men - Chapters 5 and 6.
Homework: should be expected about 3 nights a week and should take
15-20 minutes on average. Longer assignment will usually have extended
due dates so students can plan accordingly. Homework should be done with
thought and care and will often be a check of understanding of what
was taught in class, or a pre-thinking exercise that will be used in class the
following day. Some assignments may simply be checked for completeness;
others may be collected and graded. Assignments are always posted and
announced/explained in class.
Vocabulary and spelling are a regular part of our work. A new list of 10 words
is introduced each Monday. The workbook exercises are due on Thursday that
week, with a spelling and definition asessment on Friday. Students should review
the list each night during the week to prepare.
Please contact me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
I am looking forward to a great year!
