The 2011-2012 school year promises to be full of opportunity and growth for us all. I look forward to helping each and every one of you on your way to experiencing success in my classroom. Please understand though that being successful is primarily your responsibility. Make no mistake; it will take time and effort, preparation and organization, communication and hard work. I am here to teach you, guide you, help you, and offer you the chance for a successful year. Remember, failure is dangerously easy but it’s not an option.

This course explores American Literature from the Early Colonial period through contemporary works. You will learn to examine and evaluate literature both on a critical and personal level through writing responses, essays, tests/quizzes, journal entries, and classroom discussions. You will continue to hone your vocabulary, grammar, and speaking skills through classroom activities and practices.

English 12 introduces many important works from British literature, each revealing the evolution of the language we predominately use today. This course will provide you with enriching opportunities to improve your skills at reading, writing, and speaking through the analysis and exploration of literature. As this course is required for graduation from Woodbury High School, students need to come to class prepared on a daily basis and complete all major writing and speaking assignments in a successful manner.
