Grade 12 English here at UMCA

Welcome to Grade 12 English here at UMCA Richtree Academy! My name is Patrick
> Halpenny and I will be your English teacher.

> Cramming 5 months of work into just one month can be an overwhelming and, at
> times, nerve-wracking thing. But fear not, here at Richtree we plan on making
> sure that you come to your classes prepared and enthusiastic. It should come as
> no surprise that within ENG4U there will be a significant amount of reading,
> writing, and analysis. Each class will be dedicated to a specific reading,
> followed by a discussion, and a written analysis of each work. I will not be
> spending each class speaking for hours on end like many dreadful English
> teachers. This is a course that requires everyone to be involved with the
> material, so please come prepared.

> A prime objective within this subject is to prepare students for their
> university academics. One area that students will need to practice is
> communication through essay writing. At the end of the course (the same day as
> their final exam) students will need to submit an analytical essay/independent
> study unit based on two novels of their choosing. Therefore it is very
> important that all students read and analyze two specific books (required to be
> at a grade 11 or grade 12-level of reading). 

> As for the agenda of the course, students will be observing the following works
> as a class group. These books/plays will be:
> 1) A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
> 2) Taming of The Shrew by William Shakespeare
> 3) Kindred by Octavia Butler
> Each week students will be writing responses, as well as completing unit
> assignments and tests.

> I know that English requires a lot of time and energy, but with the right
> attitude and devotion, all of you students can achieve excellent results.
> If any student or parent has any questions related to the course then please
> feel free to contact me at the following email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

> Thank you and I look forward to seeing all of you in the summer!
