We are excited to have you in ELA class this year!  Throughout the course of the year, you will develop skills in order to be an effective writer and communicator, as well as a successful student in high school. During the first quarter, you will examine the essential questions: What does it mean to be an outsider? Who are the outsiders in the novels we read and the lives we lead? The Outsiders, Night, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, The House on Mango Street, and Romeo and Juliet.
