General English 3

  • General English 3 Expectations

    Welcome to General English 3.  We start class each day by reviewing grammar, punctuation, and capitalization.  We work to develop our skills in writing as well as comprehension and the ability to analyze texts. Students are expected to select a text within their reading level range each quarter as homework and submit weekly reading logs to track their progress with their novels.

    Major themes for English 3 include: The American Dream and Social Justice.

    Our tentative plan, subject to change, and regularly updated here as necessary. Due to the nature of the General English course, daily adjustments are made to accommodate the learning needs of students, and some lessons may take longer or less time than initially planned. Please don't hesitate to contact me for more specifics each week if needed.
