Hi! My name is Tia Medley and this year I will be teaching English II and English II Honors.
We will be adhering to the TN state standards while covering aspects of literature and the English language. The major works we read include To Kill a Mockingbird, The Hate U Give, A Raisin in the Sun, and Julius Caesar. We also incorporate many non-fiction articles, short stories, and poetry as supplemental texts.
Grammar will be covered through "bell ringer" work, usually involving an ACT practice question. Vocabulary and TNReady practice is also covered through bell work.
In addition, students are required to read a classic individually each 9 weeks. These books have been chosen by me and approved by administration.
Writing assignments and essays are essential to this class; therefore, we write often. We focus on informative, narrative, and argumentative writing.
All students are required to take the teacher-made mid-term and the state mandated TNReady EOC at the end of the school year. There are no exemptions to those tests.
I look forward to a great year!
