Welcome

Welcome to Honors English 6/7/8. We are excited that you have taken the initiative to choose a more rigorous path for your education. Honors English students are expected to discuss literature thoughtfully, to read voraciously, to write willingly, and to present confidently. Most importantly, honors English students should have a genuine love for reading and writing.

 

Thank you in advance for committing to:

Assigned reading outside of class time

Completing all assignments on time

A higher volume of reading, writing and homework

Two or more hours of independent reading a week

 

Summer Reading

Please be sure to complete the required summer reading. Honors English is a more challenging environment, and completing this reading will help you walk in the door ready to participate. When instruction begins, there will be a test and a writing assignment connected to the assigned novel.
