Second Semester, 2013-2014

As we go into the second semester, we will be meeting some new challenges as well as new assignments.

Seniors will be turning in their essays on Hamlet and reading the Romantics and learning the process and methodology of literary analysis.

9-10 Honors will be reading and studying the genre of Drama, to include independent readings of Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer's Night Dream, a class study of Our Town, and analyzing the genre.

11-12 Honors will also be reading and analyzing the Romantics, but on a much larger scale.  They will also be independently reading Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen.

The Drama classes will be writing and performing their own original scenes in small groups.  We will also be determining if we can put on a public performance this Spring.

End of the First Semester: 2012-2013

Hey everyone: 

We are going to be getting ready for the end of the semester.  That means semester exams, even in Drama.

The semester finals will cover all completed sections of what we have to that point covered.  Because we will not be able to have the semester end in alignment with our units.  Know that when we continue with the unit in the new semester, I will not create an entirely new or full blown exam.  I will create an interim summative assignment to cover the rest of the unit.
