Transcript of Back to School Night

Welcome to Back to School Night!
Mrs. Villano
9th, 10th, and 11th grade English My Main Focus: Guiding students to find and use their potential in English.
Keeping state and diocesan standards in mind while creating and teaching lessons.
Supporting the new Freshmen Writing course by allowing students to write in class on a weekly basis, as well as further instruction.
Too many students move on to the next grade and to college unprepared to write correctly
10th grade - the students' first paper will be on themes and symbols in the book, "Lord of the Flies" which we start tomorrow.
11th grade - Students are currently writing a paper on Romanticism in "Field of Dreams", which is due Monday. Another important skill to focus on is "close reading".
As we read in class, we stop frequently and talk about the deeper meanings of the text.
This is a skill required for more challenging reading and will help when taking the SATs.
This also facilitates GREAT class disscusions! To Keep You "In the Know" I want you to know that I am always available through my e-mail (moretti@ndnj.org).
If you need to speak with me on the phone, please let me know through e-mail, or by calling the school (my extention is 219).
I will post grades as I grade assignments/tests, etc. The new Whipple-Hill system is much more user-friendly than what we used last year! About Me Graduated from Temple University with a double major: Secondary Education & English & Board Certified to teach English.
Member of my professional organization, the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE). I attended the national convention the past 2 years & worked with some of the best educators of English.
I love what I do! Questions for me? A Typical Day in Mrs. Villano's Class... "Question of the Day" (9th) -OR- Free Reading (10th & 11th).

Changes daily after that, depending on unit! In addition, I always tell the students that I am trying to promote "academic responsibility." By this I mean that I leave it up to them to get assignments missed, get extra help, and to turn assignments in on time.
An example of this within the classroom are the 3 class folders by my desk. There is one for each period and if a student is absent, I put the missed work in the folder. The student is responsible for getting the work the next day. (They have all been doing it)!
