Bartlett High School

Welcome to 10th Grade English

Tenth grade is an important and exciting year!  We will be reading a variety of literature, learning new vocabulary, brushing up on writing skills, and preparing for the writing assessment and TNReady test this spring.  We will be embarking on an exciting adventure, and I'm glad to have your child in my class this year! 

During the 1st Quarter we will be reading Elie Weisel's account of his experiences as a Holocaust survivor in Night

During the 2nd Quarter we will be studying rhetoric and how it is used in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.  (My personal favorite!)

During the 3rd Quarter we will be reading and discussing various short stories, and completing a research project.

During the 4th Quarter we will be reading and discussing the play Twelve Angry Men.

Feel free to check my weekly "posts"  for an overview of what we will be doing each week.  Weekly Agendas will also be posted in Clever.
