Welcome AECHS juniors! I am excited (and admittedly anxious) to work with all of you in English/LA 11. After teaching for the last twenty years at Ellet High School, I am eager to take on new and meaningful challenges. Together I hope that all of us can enhance our perspectives, through varied reading, purposeful writing and other Language Arts pursuits.

For Tuesday, August 27...Click the above link and read the brief article. Compose written responses to the following for discussion in class - and to submit for 15% grade credit:
1 - What significant impact did Senator Joe McCarthy have on U.S. Hidtory?
2 - In separate paragraphs, explain what each of the following individuals brought to American popular culture:
- Leonard Bernstein
- Arthur Miller
- Edward R. Murrow
3 - Aside from being falsely accused of being communist, for what other reason were some people jailed?
Additional class material on 8/26, and through part of the week, will center on one approach to any creative writing we'll tackle...plus we will begin a reading/study of "The Crucible", which strongly mirrors the events of McCarthyism.
