• Welcome back for the 2018-2019 school year.  While my website is the best place to find documents and missing assignments, this portal is where you can catch up on your students progress.  I will post updates and pictures as we go through the year so that you can see what your child is doing in class.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me any time.

  • Reading Plus Testing

    Posted by Jesse Preece on 8/31/2018 9:00:00 AM

    Today and yesterday, all of my English II students completed a diagnostic assessment of their reading level using Reading Plus.  This assessment gauges their current level of comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency.  If you would like to know your child's reading level so that you can choose appropriate materials for them to read at home, please email me.

  • Syllabus review

    Holy boring batman!  All of my English II students will be milling their way through the district ELA writing rubric.  It is long. It is dense. It is written in that dry, overly accurate bureaucratic language we’ve all come to know and loath. 

    No worries though.  By the end of class today, my students will have rewritten their rubric into language fit for a network teen drama.

    Tell them thank you for me when they get home.  Let them have a nap.
