Students, on this site you will see pages devoted to the High School English class.  I will post daily assignments complete with all notes and handouts.  If you are absent, you need only check the date that you were not here to get whatever you are missing.   Let me know if there is anything else you would like to see added.

Colleagues worldwide are welcome to any material that they may find useful in their classrooms.  Please drop me a line to let me know if you found something useful or something else you would like to see.

Parents, please use this site to keep track of what your students are doing in class.  All notes, handouts, and assignments will be found on daily posts.

Intro to Our Town ppt Our Town

Reflect, either mentally or on paper, on an average day in your lives. “What do you see and do when you first wake up? What things do you use? What clothes do you choose? Who is there? What about as your day goes on? What is it like outside? What are the sounds you hear? What meaningful conversations do you have? Who shares those conversations with you? What makes you laugh? What do you eat? What possessions do you have with you? As you go to bed, what memorable experiences are you thinking about?”

Write a list of things you are grateful for, based on their “average day” reflections and other things that pop up as you write.

Look for items that are both precious and ordinary. For each example, ask: What would your life be like if this thing (relationship, experience, etc.) no longer existed? What would you lose besides the thing itself? Is there an easy substitute for it? Do you think that in the past, it was easier to appreciate the small things? If so, what has changed in our culture? Do you think people your age find it easy or difficult to appreciate the simple things in life? Explain.

Intro Activity: Our Town Introductory Activity
Create Town – In groups of 4-5, students will use poster board or butcher paper and draw the town as it is described in the stage directions. This is a class grade. The class will vote on which group drew the best and closest representation to the play. As the directions are somewhat vague, their representations may vary.
