    Week of April 20 - April 24, 2020:

     

    Erie High's 9th and 11th grade English teachers are collaborating to provide online instruction commencing April 20.  These online lessons will appear in Google Classrooms on that date.  Ideally, all students will be registered to the online classrooms and will be able to commence instruction on April 20. 

    Instruction for all Erie High English classes for April 20 through 24 will be based upon viewing an online Internet safety video.  The link for this video is as follows:

    After Internet safety, the content for Erie High's English 9 and English 9 Honors classes will commence with autobiographical style stories--one nonfiction and two fiction.  These 3 stories can be accessed at the following links: 

     

    "On Being 17, Bright--and Unable to Read":

    After Internet safety, the content for Erie High's English 11 and English 11 Honors classes will consist of the play A Raisin in the Sun. The full text of this play can be accessed at the following link:
