Beginning of year in English 10

We began the year exploring identity. We have watched and read a couple different speeches to get used to thinking about the persona of authors and how that affects their messages. In reading these speeches, students have been easing back into annotation. We will continue with both of these over the next couple of weeks. Students have also been documenting their own identity and are working on drafts of a personal narrative.

Homework: review the course norms with your parents and return the signed slip first thing next week.
