    We will continue with poetry analysis.    Students should also obtain a copy of Fiske Word Power by Edward B. Fiske.  I will periodically give class work weighted assignments for appropriate use of these words.  My current focus is on the first ten chapters.  The first assignment will be Tuesday March 22nd.  At this time, we are reading/viewing Shakespeare's King Lear.  I have copies of that play for student use.  After we finish that unit, we will begin reading J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye as we focus on the Bildungsroman (a coming of age novel).

    English III - 
    Students are well into the unit for The Great Gatsby.  We will have vocabulary tests and writing assignments associated with this unit.
