    Welcome to English 4!

    Welcome to English IV with Miss Borrelli and Mrs. Bruinooge!  This semester will focus on improving all literary skills including reading, writing, speaking, and listening.  Our curriculum is a blend of classic and contemporary works.  This balance helps students engage with current topics they find most relevant, while still gaining exposure to timeless pieces that have been studied for years.

    We are always available for assistance with anything, so please reach out if you have any questions/concerns.

    Authentic Assessment / Semester Project  

    The grade 12 authentic assessment unit will integrate non-fiction, creative non-fiction, narrative fiction, dramatic literature, research, and writing using the theme of Global Issues. The course will provide students with the ability to strengthen understanding and develop skills, while continuously requiring learners to reflect and build upon information and previously studied material, thus developing the career and college skill of synthesis.

    CONSEQUENCES

    • School rules and consequences are outlined in The JLHS student handbook.
