School Year 2016-2017
Students will be asked to read 1 book a month for my class. Hopefully they will read a total of 10+ this year.
They will do a book talk after reading their Sept. Book. – due before Oct 6.
Are you taking Pre-AP English next year at Round Rock HS or McNeil HS? Below is the summer reading assignment that you have to do .
**There was an extension given so that students that hadn’t finished their books could finish them. Many students put so much extra effort into their Author Projects that they fell behind in reading. Since the purpose of the book report was to read the ENTIRE book, they all now have time to do just that. Kudos to the kids that finished their books and their projects.
Author Projects -Due April 27th
Students had to write a book with or without a partner. They chose from a list of Science or History topics. It could be fiction or nonfiction. The book had to be a minimum of 10 pages. They were given time in class to complete it.

Prompt- Tell about a time you learned a lesson

A narrative is an essay that tells a story.
In this case, the story will be about you! This formal essay should follow the format you have been given. As with all formal essays, it should be:
- Typed in 12-point, easy to read font, or neatly written in blue or black ink
- Have indented paragraphs
- Include a title page with your name, date, and period number
- Be an example of your very best work
Tips for Writing a Good Narrative
- Begin with a catchy hook…….Sometimes my imagination gets the best of me. In my gymnastics career, fear is something I deal with every day.
- Have a clear thesis statement……. It should be the last sentence of your first paragraph. (Your first paragraph should be short!) I never thought I could switch gymnastic teams. I didn’t know it, but today I was going to learn an important lesson.
- Separate events clearly into paragraphs…..Divide the events by chronological order. When you change time or thought, start a new paragraph.
- Beware of Sentence Structure….Write sentences that are clear and concise. Sometimes I assume I can’t do something because my mind takes over. Sometimes, my feelings engulf me and I think I can’t do something.
- Try for some “sentence variety” …. Start your sentence with an introductory phrase and comma: When I was young, After breakfast, Gently and carefully,
- Combine sentences that are short to avoid repeating yourself…I have been able to conquer most of my fears. One fear was working on a 4-inch beam.I have been able to conquer most of my fears, such as working on a 4-inch beam.
- Revise for Word Choice…Get rid of “dead” words, Use sophisticated words, but KNOW what they mean, Double check your verbs—use vibrant ones! Include some dialogue!!
- Have a clear conclusion…Restate the words from the prompt in your conclusion. I don’t know why I thought I could not wakeboard. This is a lesson I won’t soon forget.
- Bring back the hook to form a circle….Sometimes I should listen to my imagination..I don’t know why I was so frightened of changing gyms.
