Happy First Day of School!!

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year, everyone!!

My name is Ms. Spiceland, and I’ll be teaching you in World Literaturethis semester. We’re planning a pretty awesome year for you guys! Our World Lit course is what’s called a thematic course, rather than just going in chronological order. That means that instead of reading REALLY OLD stuff first, and working our way up to the only-kinda-old stuff, we’re going to read stuff of all different ages, but with similar themes. Does that make sense? No? Well, we’ll work on it together. In the meantime…

Standard: W.9-10.2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas, concepts, and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.

Learning Target: Students will be introduced to the curriculum of Tenth Grade World Literature and Composition, and will write a letter of introduction about themselves.

Activator: Buffalo buffalo buffalo

So, I hope you guys are intrigued so far :) We’re kicking off the semester by introducing ourselves, because otherwise how will we know what we’re getting into? So, here’s my first PowerPoint of the year for you guys:)


After our rousing game of Two Truths and a Lie, and hearing all about your guys and your interesting winter breaks, I think it’s time for some writing. YAY, WRITING! (Get used to it, you’ll write ’til your arms fall off in here!) Let’s write a letter of introduction, shall we?

Letter of introduction instructions!

Hey, wanna hear something cool? I’m making a commitment to you guys to always do the work that I assign you. So on that note, I’ve got my own letter of introduction :) Here you are, for your reading pleasure:

My Intro Letter!

And that’s everything for today, gang! I hope you guys are psyched up about a great semester in world lit. I know I am!
