**Student absences: please notify the school and me if your child is going to be absent for an extended period of time.  It is our policy NOT to provide work to students before they leave for extended holidays, and so it is the responsibility of students to catch up on missed instruction/assignments when they return.

English 8 2011-12. Very intense Silent Reading? Except for the few whose books are upside down. So funny ;)


"For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." - William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Hamlet, II.ii



"To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object. Books must be read as deliberately and reservedly as they were written." -- Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Remember, if you are struggling to read a Shakespearean play on your own, trying reading it aloud with some friends. By taking on roles, and hearing the language out loud, you will have a greater engagement with the play. Plays are not meant to be read like books and can be dry and tedious if read...
