Welcome to a New School Year!

Welcome to English 10! Congratulations on passing English 9!
I'm very excited about this school year. I have lots of things planned for you guys to get you excited about English class, or at least not hating English!
We have several short story units including a Family/Heritage Unit, Prisoners of Circumstance Unit and Fantasy/Science Fiction Unit.
We will definitely be reading the novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom. I've had students in the past who hated reading, and they said how much they liked this novel.
I plan to include some new technologies, using the Promethean Board, new computer Web 2.0 tools, and maybe even collaborating with some other classrooms online.
It should be a great year!
Remember- You can always come and ask me for help or anything else!
