Emphasis on Participation (answering and asking questions, reading out loud, discussing material, working in groups and partnerships)

Mid-term and Final (based on class material, but also on English 11 Common Core Regents format, so that students are familiar with the test before entering 11th grade)

Students should maintain one notebook (or section in a loose-leaf binder) in English 10 for notes, informal writing, and quizzes.  A flash drive is helpful for formal writing assignments, so students can work on their papers at home and in school.

Please feel free to contact me at ppfarrer@newfieldschools.org  or 564-9955 (3225) with any concerns and/or questions; I will respond promptly.  As a parent, I know how important it is to be involved and feel connected to your son or daughter’s education.  My door is open to you, and I’ll do whatever I can to help your son/daughter have a successful year in English 10.
