English IV

  • TAKING A BREAK FROM SENIORS AS I'M TEACHING FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES!  However, if you want to see what I do for seniors should I teach them again, read below:

    If you've come to this page looking for guidance on what senior English will be, you've come to the right place.

    First off, especially for those of you who have had me as a teacher in previous years, just know that this year--your FINAL year--will be different from our classes of years past.  It is quite a writing-intensive year which will require you to take the initiative in a lot of our discussions, activities, and so forth.  If any of you were in my Public Speaking class, this year will be similar to that, however, in an English format and setting.  You're less than a year from leaving the safest comfort zone you know--it's about time we start reading and writing about and discussing things that truly matter. 

    Below is the MAJOR, critical website for this year:

    Teacher Blog:        http://e4hartz.wordpress.com/

    As of this edit (8/22/17), this link is up and running and will act as a log of the year's lessons.  For access to any handouts as well as engagement with any other media, go to the Teacher Blog above.  Please note, tests and quizzes will not be posted to the Teacher Blog (for obvious reasons).  Also, we will be viewing Internet video clips from time to time that might not be linkable to the Teacher Blog.  I will do my best to make sure you have everything you need for the day's lesson should you be absent.  If all else fails, communicate with me in person.
