Whether it is anxiety, fear, or anticipation, get ready for the Shakespeare unit. It will be challenging, so it is expected that you are prepared for that challenge. Prepare by reviewing your literary devices, which can be found in the Language Resource. It will be expected that everyone participates often and regularly, as we will be reading the play as a class, so volunteer for roles upon entering class. Also, pay close attention in class, utilizing all active listening skills, like note-taking and asking questions. This unit does not have to be painful; it can be fun!


Always take notes in class and ask questions. Your goals to attend post-secondary depend on simple skills such as active listening, note-taking, initiative, and self-advocacy! You will be responsible for knowing anything curricular that I say in class, write on the board, or provide on this website. If there is something that you do not understand, do not procrastinate; ask questions or request help.


Extra help is offered after school in my classroom, by appointment only. Remember - extra help is not for dummies - it's for anything you feel you can improve upon. If you knew how to get to the next level by yourself, you wouldn't need teachers and coaches. Is your mark worth some time after school?
