Welcome to our English! This year we will continue to explore various writing styles (expository, narrative, etc.). Get ready for this year's novel: Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli. I am excited to announce that we will start the year off with our American Literature texts so we can get a sampling of great literary pieces from a variety of authors! If time allows, we will read selections from Edgar Allen Poe.
Recommended supplies for English class:
Single subject notebook just for English
Composition notebook for Journal Writing
Ultra-thin Sharpie Marker
Pencils, blue or black ink pens
A 1 1/2- 2" binder (so we can organize all of the notes for the novel we are reading)
