Welcome back to school! It is going to be a great semester, and I am looking forward to being back in the classroom with you again. 

Strategic Reading is a program designed to teach incoming freshmen some key tactics in reading literary and  informational texts. This course helps the student establish a good foundation to begin studying English at the high school level, and will cover the seven learning strategies of effective readers: activating, inferring, monitoring-clarifying, questioning, searching-selecting, summarizing, and visualizing-organizing. Ths goal is to enter English I reading on grade level in order to meet with success. 

Yes, this year is going to be different - but different is not bad, and so much good can come from it. There are so many opportunities right now to choose success. Be sure that you are ready to make that choice.  

Let me leave you with this quote from King T'Challa's speech to the UN from the Marvel movie "Black Panther"

Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than divides us. But in times of crisis, the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.”
