  • AP Lit: We have started reading “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte. There is a vocabulary test this Friday
  • Science Fiction: We are continuing to read “Frankenstein” in class.  There is a vocabulary test this Thursday
  • English 1B: We are continuing our study of poetry.  There is a vocabulary test on Thursday
  • Contemporary Lit: We are reading Parts 3 and 4 (the end) of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”

As always, check the above drop-down menus for more detailed lessons and downloadable handouts.

I will not be at school Wednesday-Friday of this week.  I will be chaperoning EHS kid’s trip to the East Coast!
