Dear Parents and Guardians,
First quarter is flying by and going really well as we worked through a thematic unit in English 10. At the end of the quarter, we will be reading John Steinbeck’s classic novel Of Mice and Men. While this is a short book, most of which will be read in class, the themes, characters, and plots have a profound impact on the students. Additionally, this novel deals with some sensitive issues. We will also be studying the film adaptation of this novel. If you have concerns about your child reading the novel or viewing the film, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can provide an alternate independent study assignment.
This unit will culminate with a Socratic Seminar, which will be used to assess students’ understanding of concepts and themes in the novel Of Mice and Men.
We look forward to finishing off this quarter strong. Please check Infinite Campus regularly for updated reports of your child’s grade.
Have a wonderful day,
The English 10 Team
