    Welcome to English!
     
    Students within my classes will focus on critical reading and writing while analyzing various pieces of literature. We will be focusing on specific themes and archeotypes introduced in literature, such as societal pressure, coming of age, right of passage, and the outcast, the innocent, and the trickster. Vocabulary and grammar studies will also be an essential component of each class. For more detailed information on this class, such as course descriptions, expectations, policies, and syllabii,  please log in to https: loudoun.vision.org
     
     
    If you have any further questions about English, please feel free to email me.
     
    Sincerely,
    Karrie Rinder
