**Please be responsible and bring all the required materials to class** General Learning Objectives Communication Speaking: interpret, negotiate, and react orally in various socio-linguistic situations. Reading: interpret and react critically towards the significance of messages from the media and various texts. Writing: present information, concepts, and ideas to different audiences and with different

intentions. Guidelines for a healthy learning environment All school rules apply to our classroom. Using appropriate language is mandatory (no swearing or foul language sorry, I know its fun). You can bring water to class, but no food, pop, juice(A reusable water bottle would be better for the environment)

Please wait for the bell to ring before getting up to leave. Trips to the bathroom or drinking fountain will be to my discretion. Respect is of the utmost importance: respect the class material and the people who share this space. *Remember.you are old enough to know better, and when you know better, you do better ;) Goals

to become a better writer to be able to express your thoughts in a clear and elegant manner (to become a better speaker) to be ready for post-secondary studies I can help, and I will help, but Dead Poets Society

We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. So medicine, law, business, engineering... these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love... these are what we stay alive for. Flowers For Algernon

I dont know whats worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what youve always wanted to be, and feel alone. Tuesdays With Morrie So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way

you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
