• Welcome to our English!   This year we will continue to explore various writing styles (expository, narrative, etc.).  Get ready for this year's  novel: Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli.  I am excited to announce that we will start the year off with our American Literature texts so we can get a sampling of great literary pieces from a variety of authors!  If time allows, we will read selections from Edgar Allen Poe.
