Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year I cannot wait to see all the things we will accomplish in A20 this year.
SIGN UP FOR REMIND: LOOK at syllabus for information!!!
Welcome to American Literature. Your student will have a calendar for the current month in his or her binder. As the year goes by we will cover Native American Myths, Puritan-Early American Literature, Romanticism, Transcendentalism, Roaring Twenties, and ending with Modern American Literature. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at the link above.
THREE IMPORTANT GOALS COVERED ALL SEMESTER LONG IN A20:
To sign up:
OBHS has a digital learning initiative and EVERY students will receive their own personal laptop. The cost will be $25 annually but this is a necessity for this school year. We are implementing a new ELA curriculum and your student will need his/her device DAILY!
This year we are excited to implement a new curriculum: StudySync. This synchronous textbook will permit the students to work both online and through consumable workbooks.
READING IS ESSENTIAL
- READ EVERY DAY 20 MINUTES
- Journal what you read
- Look up words that are unfamiliar
You are your own key to success push yourself daily and make a better you!
