Week of April 3rd

This week is a big week at North Schuylkill. Not only are we starting our 4th Marking Period on Tuesday, but we are also taking our English PSSAs! As we come to the last 25% of the school year and the weather starts to get warmer, I know it can be hard to focus on schoolwork. You have come so far in the past 7 months and you don't want to waste all that effort now. Stay focused until the end of the year and then get as much as you possibly can out of a relaxing and rewarding summer!

English 9
We are going to begin our final unit of study this week and it will focus on one of the most famous pieces of literature ever written. Romeo and Juliet is a play that students have been reading and learning about in school for a long time and it is something that everyone has read. You're about to join those millions of readers and become familiar with one of Shakespeare's most famous plays.

It's PSSA week! This is the moment you've spent so many months working toward. It's finally here! Your teachers are so proud of the work you have done and we cannot wait to see you show others how much you have learned this year!

Our schedules this week will be different than normal because of testing so please be sure you know what your daily schedule is.

We will continue working with the excerpt from Annie Dillard's "An American Childhood." We will complete our final read of the text this week and will be able to have in-depth discussions about it as well as connect it to other pieces of art you have encountered.

We are going to finish our work up on "Everyday Use" this week. We will complete one more read through and will then have a final discussion and a quiz on the story. I expect to be done with this short story on Wednesday, so you should begin to prepare for the quiz early this week. After the quiz, we will move on to reading another selection from this unit. We are looking specifically at how writers shed light on what it means to be human through their writing.
