    The final modules and assignments for the year are now posted on Canvas for all classes. Please note, ALL ASSIGNMENTS must be completed by May 15 for grades 9-11. You may do any of the assignments that I have given during the fourth term. Late work will be accepted. 

    ACC English I/Engllish I -

    #1 -- reading questions for sections 7-9 of Night (these are short sections and you have 9 questions total)

    #2 -- Found Poetry from Night (instructions on Canvas)


    English III -

    #1 -- Found Poetry for Gatsby (see directions on Canvas)

    #2 -- Life Skills Challenge (see directions on Canvas) and Survey 


    I have enjoyed being your teacher this year, and I only wish we had been able to spend more time in the classroom together. I hope you all will have a very safe and happy rest of the school year and summer. I hope to see all your smiling faces in August! :)

  • A note about homework

    Posted by Lynne Schneider on 4/14/2020

    Homework Assignments will be posted here as well as on Canvas. Homework in English will primarilhy be vocabulary practice, reading assignments for class quizzes and discussion, pre-writing, drafting, or revising a written assignment, or study/review for a test or quiz. Homework is assigned as needed and is frequent, but not every class meeting. 

    Remember that Homework assignments are not taken past the due date!

  • Week of April 20-24

    Posted by Lynne Schneider on 4/14/2020

    This week, each class has one main assignment to complete. Please refer to the district grading policy for Term 4 to understand how this work will affect your grade. I hope everyone is staying positive and following guidelines for families to stay healthy. 


    English I/ACC English I -- complete review questions for Section 4 of Night. I often show the film The Boy in the Striped Pajamas or The Diary of Anne Frank during this study. I know this is a time of stress and worry for many, so I am not assigning or asking students to view these films because they are about the Holocaust and are very emotional for many to watch. If you want to watch a film about the Holocaust, I'd suggest either of these two. 

    English III -- Who is Guilty in Gatsby? Which character is most to blame for the tragedies that occur in the novel. (I blame Daisy!) Write a 5-paragraph essay explaining who you would like to see found guilty and why. I always end our study of Gatsby with a viewing of the movie version (Either the 1970s Robert Redford version or the 2016 Leo De Caprio version). I encourage you to find a way to watch it while you are at home in the next week or two.

    For this week, I am not making any new assignments for students. Please go to Canvas and complete assignments that you have not done yet. Also:


    English I/ACC English I -- continue and complete reading of Night, by Elie Wiesel. PDF and audio files of the book are available on Canvas. 


    English III -- complete reading The Great Gatsby and all chapter reading questions that have been assigned. 


    No assignments have been locked and I will not be counting off for late work. I can be reached via email, Remind, or Canvas to answer any questions or for you to let me know about any issues or difficulties you are having. 

    I will be making decisions about how we will finalize our novel/memoir studies this week, as we get more information about if/when we will return to the school building, and I will give that to you all here, on Remind texts, and on Canvas announcements and modules.
