What's Going On in English Class?
Each day we will spend 20 minutes at the beginning of class free-reading. Most days, students may read their choice of novels, magazines or newspapers. However, on occasion, articles or short stories may be assigned as topics become relevant to school and/or current events.
The English 1 final will be given in June. The exam counts as 20% of your final grade for the class, so it's like MP5.
The exam contains:
- a reading passages with corresponding multiple choice questions to answer
- Multiple choice questions about Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare
- A Task 4 essay (Critical lens: A quote will be given to you that you must interpret and relate 2 pieces of literature to. You also must use appropriate literary elements to support your opinion...theme, conflict, setting, characterization etc.)
How do I study for the final?
Look over your OMM and R & J study guides, quizzes and tests. Use your review notes and your practice critical lens essays. Make sure that you are in class and paying attention while we are reviewing!!!
