Your child is currently enrolled in Pre-AP English 1 with Mr. Susman. On his website, Mr. Susman states "English I Pre-AP is the only honors English course available for McCallum High School freshman. To be successful in this class, all students must complete their reading and writing assignments on their own time. They also must be organized, thoughtful, original, and punctual with all work. Being smart or intelligent is not enough to pass, students must work hard and think deeply. Use the assignment calendar and take all deadlines seriously!"
This semester, your child will be reading The Stranger and Frankenstein as whole class texts. We will also be spending a portion of the semester preparing for the STAAR test, which takes place on March 29th. Other than the STAAR, your child will be taking an EOC (end of course) exam.
Below, you will find some links and resources to help you help your student.
I look forward to working with your child this semester and would love to get to know you as well. Please feel free to come say hi during 1st, 2nd, or 5th period in Mr. Susman's classroom!
