Miss Goodwin and Chloe

Welcome to my webpage!  I teach Grade 9 English, as well as Literature to English Language Learners.  I am a teacher in the Freshmen Academy, an Advisor of the Peer Advocates, and an avid dog lover!  
*** 
 
Grade 9 English focuses on "Genre's of Literature", formal writing, and vocabulary enrichment. 
Our year is comprised of 7 units, which include literary devices, fiction, non-fiction, drama, poetry, grammar, and much, MUCH more!
***
The texts we read range from ancient to modern!  We hope you are as excited as we are to:
* tour ancient Greece with the Gods and Goddesses,
* fall in love in Verona with Romeo and Juliet,
*battle prejudice and injustice in World War II Europe with Elie Wiesel
* dream about the rabbits out west with Lennie and George
and
*support district twelve's Katniss Everdeen in Panem's annual fight for survival!
