Welcome to English 10! I am looking forward to this year, and I hope that you are, also. We'll be trying many new approaches to learning and to literature this year.
My philosophy about learning is that we all have to make mistakes before we will actually learn a skill. Mastering a skill or concept takes practice. So, in English 10, it is fine to make a mistake, but we do need to learn from them. Next, learning should be interesting, and it should be fun. That being said, of course, not everything will be fun. But I promise to do my best to attempt to keep our classes interesting, interactive, and energetic.
