Welcome to English 9! 
 Romeo and Juliet Unit  Students are expected to bring
their books to class every day, along with study guides and notes. There will
be quizzes on each act. For homework, students should reread each scene that
was read in class to further their understanding.

personification, aside, soliloquy, dramatic irony situational irony, verbal irony, comic relief, pun


  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.
Please contact me at with any questions or concerns.
I am looking forward to a great year!
