Dear Parent(s)/Guardian,

Welcome to Accelerated English 10. Parents, students, and teachers create the triangle of education. Each is a support for the other and together we create a successful learning community. I look forward to working with you and your child as he/she develops an appreciation for literature, the writing process, sets goals, and reaches success. 

Because this is an accelerated class, there will be homework. My promise to you and your child is simple: the homework will be meaningful and practical. As we work through texts, it will be necessary to read assigned pages outside of class so we are able to use in-class time to find deeper meaning in the text through close reading, literary devices, and figurative language. When students are working on writing papers, I dedicate several days of in class work time to the writing process. Having said this, some work will be necessary outside of the classroom. 

I look forward to being a partner in your child's learning in Accelerated English 10. If you ever have questions regarding the content of the class, homework, grading, or other issues related to your child, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Thank you and welcome to Accelerated English 10.
