I am so excited to be a part of your journey as critical readers, writers, and thinkers. In English class, we will build the literacy skills you will need to read, write, listen, and speak effectively in the 21st century. Thanks to the internet and the reality that we have instant access to information on devices we can hold in our hands, you need to become even more mindful consumers and producers of information. You will use the skills you develop in English class not only when we read novels and informational texts and write essays in our class but you should use these skills in every other class you take and in every day of your lives.
I do update our class webpage frequently. You will find class handouts, due dates, and other important information by grade level on this website. Bookmark it for easy access (or Google "Mrs. Grandits English"). Click on this link to access our class website.

Here's to a great year!
