Autumn is almost upon us, and so are 1st quarter Benchmarks for all 4×4 classes. (This does not apply to A/B classes.)
English 12 classes will be wrapping up their study of Chaucer and of The Time Machine, with a number of tests and quizzes in the week ahead. Benchmark tests will be given on October 12th. We will be doing a lot of culminating activities and review in preparation.
AP classes will be having their first test — on I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings –, continuing the analysis of selected poetry, and beginning a study of Anglo-Saxon literature.

As we start the 4th week of classes, students in all classes have already turned in their personal narrative essays for use with college applications.
AP classes are finishing discussion and analysis of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and are preparing for their first test of the year. They will then begin a unit on Anglo-Saxon literature, as well as work on the novel Heart of Darkness.
English 12 classes have just finished their Anglo-Saxon Unit and are starting on the Middle Ages while also reading the novel The Time Machine as a social metaphor/allegory.
