10th & 11th Grade English
Sr. Arwa Aljahmee
Dear Parents and students,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Arwa Aljahmee and I will be your child’s English teacher.
I am planning for this to be an interesting , challenging, and successful year. In English class, we will cover a wide variety of genres and continue to build upon the reading and writing skills that students focused on during their previous years. This will be a challenge, but as a class we will work together to ensure success. I have high expectations and I insist that every student perform to the best of his/her ability .
Students are most often successful when parents work together through conferences , phone calls , and email.
Course Description :
During the course of the school year students will engage with literature and nonfiction texts and explore how complex characters develop through their interactions with each other. Students will also read, discuss, and analyze poems and informational texts focusing on how authors use rhetoric and word choice to develop ideas or claims.
Attendance/ Make up Work:
Make -up work will only be available for excused absences. Make up work will be available for excused absences . The student must also ask me for make-up work . I will NOT give the student the make-up work without an excused absence and a request for the work. A student who does not turn in an assignment will receive a zero.
