Welcome to Language Arts 3 Honors. Our focus this year will be on American Literature through reading, discussing, and writing about short stories, non-fiction works, poetry, and drama. Students will also read a Shakespeare play (Macbeth), a novel they choose from a small selection, the American classic novel The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, and a nonfiction book of their choice.
We will work on honing the reading and writing skills that will mean success on the PARCC, the PSAT, SAT, Accuplacer and other standardized tests that are coming up for students in this important academic year and in the future, and ensuring that these skills are college-ready.
I strive to make the Honors class both challenging and engaging with a variety of learning activities that allow student choice and foster a sense of responsibility.
