Mrs. Dillard's Sophomores Rule the Ranch!
Welcome to another great year at The Ranch!
Check this page for information about what's happening in my English classes and the Class of 2003!
We continue to work on tone and elements of the short story. We are busily attacking word analogy relationships to prepare for the PSAT, and have already written an abbreviated personal narrative-the first of many essays we will write this year. Get ready for the Tone Test-Thursday, August 24th. Remember....DIDLS!! You can do it!!
English II Pre AP:
Our analysis of A Separate Peace is an ongoing activity, which will culminate with a test and written essay (Monday, August 28). Close reading skills have opened up a whole new world as to why an author chooses the words and details he does!! All this attention to detail regarding authors of merit will help us to become better writers!!
All sophomores will take the PSAT on Tuesday, October 17. This is a wonderful opportunity to prepare for any college entrance exam (SAT or ACT) our students decide to take.
