I teach QUEST English I & Pre-AP/IB English I.  In this course, our essential questions as we study literature and non-fiction and develop reading and writing skills this year are:
  1. What is the author doing (his or her message)?
  2. How is he/she doing it (What rhetorical strategies and literary strategies is he/she using)?
  3. How does the context influence meaning?
  4. How can we as readers communicate our understanding (written and verbal)?
Throughout each unit of study, we will consider these questions as both readers and writers.  These courses are both advanced level classes, which means that there is more rigor.  If you are in need of help to keep up with the course material, it is the student's responsibility to come in for tutorials.

Assignments themselves can be viewed, completed, and submitted through Google Classrooms.  The class calendar is that retrieved from Google Classroom.
