West Side Story

Romeo & Juliet

The Pearl

In 9th grade English we will be studying a variety of genres and taking numerous notes from slide presentations I have prepared for class. I am tying to transfer the information from those presentations to the internet so they will be available at any time for students and include information on major projects and assignments. Because we start the year with the study of the short story and spend much of the first semester with that genre, the short story unit is the first internet link I will work with. As the year progresses, I hope to put further links to specific topics on this page.
