 In English II Honors

This week students have been reading Great Expectations.  They also have a Common Lit assignment using a passage from another Dickens novel A Christmas Carol.  Common Lit features the types of questions students can expect to see on standardized tests given by the state of Arizona and SATs.

I started a new vocabulary program with Honors English II this week.  It features words that will specifically prepare them for the SATs.  Many of the students expressed a wish to feel more prepared for the English portion of this test, especially since good scores on the ACTs and SATs can lead to academic scholarships at ASU.
