English 11

Welcome to an exciting year of American literature. This year we will be devoting ourselves to a comprehensive tour of everything from Native American literature to the works of contemporary authors. Building on your writing and reading skills, you will enhance your ability to create and express a synthesis of ideas, review and analyze literary criticism, and conduct authentic research.
You will be expected to create six comprehensive writing projects, contribute daily in class, and submit work to your portfolio in a timely manner to receive credit for this class. Reading include selections from, “The Crucible,” “Huckleberry Finn,” as well as our text. Informational articles, both historical and contemporary will also be utilized for your 11th grade year.
Please bring and extra binder, your text and a blue or black pen for the first day of class. I look forward to meeting you all soon.
Welcome aboard,
Miss Hutchins
