Welcome to Mrs. Pierce's English 10 class. In this class, you will explore the thematic concept of culture through the study of Elie Wiesel's Night and other historical texts. This is a place where we work, think, and create understanding as we read, analyze, discuss, and write texts together.
You will be challenged to use evidence from challenging texts in both your written and oral responses. After our study of Night, you will be expected to write about an experience that affected you deeply and defined your culture. I can't wait to see your thinking on this and other big ideas.
My goal is to provide you with opportunities to grow as observant readers, active listeners, critical thinkers, and effective writers--some of the key skills you will need in other high school classes, college courses, and your future career.
