WELCOME TO MR. GARCIA'S ENGLISH 2 HONORS

  •  POEM (SONG) OF THE WEEK

    The Science of Myth

    If you've ever question beliefs that you hold you're not alone
    But you ought to realize that every religion is a metaphor
    In the case of Christianity
    And Judaism there exists the belief
    That spiritual matters are enslaved to history

    The Buddhists believe that the functional aspects override the myth 
    While other religions use the literal code to build foundations with
    See half the world sees the myth as fact
    And it's seen as a lie by the other half and
    The simple truth is that it's none of that cause

    Somehow no matter what the world keeps turning
    Somehow we get by without ever learning
    Somehow no matter what the world keeps turning
    Somehow we get by without ever learning

    Science and religion are not mutually exclusive
    In fact for better understanding
    We take the facts of science and apply them
    And if both factors keep evolving
    Then we continue getting information
    But closing off possibilities
    Makes it hard to see the bigger picture

    Consider the case of the woman whose faith helped her make it through
    When she was raped and cut up, left for dead in a trunk, her beliefs held true
    It doesn't matter if it's real or not
    Cause some things are better left without a doubt and
    And if it works and it gets the job done

    Somehow no matter what the world keeps turning
    Somehow we get by without ever learning
    Somehow no matter what the world keeps turning
    Somehow we get by without ever learning

  • I am Mr. Garcia and I am thrilled to begin my fourteenth year teaching at West Port High!

    In this website, you will be able to find everything and anything needed to be successful in English 2 Honors.  In the Course Information link to the right, you will be able to find the information pertaining to the course I teach (syllabus).  In the Assignments section, you will find PDFs and PowerPoint Presentations of the work done in class or work you are expected to finish at home.  In the calendar, you will find the daily agenda of what is done in class and links to the same documents in the Assignments section.  

    I will also be using a secure texting system called Remind.  Although this system will allow me to communicate with parents and students, no personal phone numbers will have to be exchanged.  All you or your parents have to do to join is follow the simple instructions below:

    • If you are a student in any of my morning (before ALPHA Time) English 2 Honors classes, you will text the message @48k6hhf to the number 81010.  You can also send an email to @mail.remind.com.

Announcements

  • Gradebook Discrepancy

    Dear parents and students, whenever you go on the portal to check grades and find that the gradebook indicates a missing assignment, don't be concerned.  When an assignment is created but a grade not put immediately, the gradebook marks it as missing.  You should only be concerned if the missing assignment is accompanied by a score of 0.  If there's a 0, you should come see me immediately during PH.
