English 9 (Semester II)
Staunton High School
I'm very excited to have you all in class this semester, and I look forward to exploring the world of composition and literature with you. We will be doing a lot of reading and writing this semester. I hope that you are prepared to work hard and stay focused. In addition, we will do a lot of meaningful writing. This, too, will push you to achieve beyond your previous work, and in doing so you will become a much more effective communicator. Above all, I hope that the work we do will be engaging, informative, educational, and fun. Come to class with a great attitude and we will have a great year!
