English students have been busy the past three weeks. Students start each day with a vocabulary bell ringer. The first week of school, they reviewed different sentence structures (simple, compound, complex, and compound/complex)  and wrote short stories about a random object they pulled from a bowl. They had to include all four sentence structures in their writing and all of the elements of plot (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution). The second week of school,…

Angela Horn, Friday, Sept. 21, 2012

Freshman and Sophomore English classes both worked on using quotation marks and underlining things such as titles of short stories, books, song, albums, poems, etc. This is a skill the students will need in order to correctly write about what they are reading. It proved to be a little more difficult that I expected, so we worked on this for most of the week and took a quiz on Thursday. Speech students presented a speech about analyzing advertisements for logical fallacies.
