Mr. Michael Shay
Welcome to American Literature! I am hoping for an exciting and engaging year of reading, writing, and communicating. From the narrative to the argumentative essays and finishing with the research paper, our goal is to improve each student's writing through the Pennsylvania Writing Rubric. We will read novels, short stories, poems, and informative non-fiction essays to broaden our understanding of the world and prepare for college level reading. Through class discussion and speaking opportunties, the students will prepare to become confident leaders in our school and onto the world.
Please check my schoology page for daily assignments, rubrics, and interesting discussions. I am available every morning and after school in room 102 or anytime by appointment.
