Greetings and Welcome to English with Ms Fey
I am pleased to be teaching 11th and 12th grade English here at Gibraltar. Here is my schedule for the 2022-2023 school year:
AP English Lit 12
AP English Lit 12
AP English Lang 11
The Wisconsin Standards for English Language Arts outlines seven abilities that students will demonstrate (Wisconsin, 8-9) as a result of their standards-based education. As they approach the culmination of their high school career, students are expected to be approaching mastery of these outcomes:
Build strong content knowledge
Respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline
Comprehend and critique a variety of texts
Use technology and digital media strategically and capably
Accomplishment of these outcomes is fostered through the standards-based education. Students will be assessed on each of these traits and present evidence of their accomplishment as a Spring Final Assessment during their senior year.
Students, you will be held to high expectations in terms of your individual work, performance, and growth, as well as meeting your responsibilities to the group. The highest priority for you as students is to maximize your learning skills by challenging yourselves intellectually. The habits that you have cultivated over your years of work both inside the school and in the community will serve you well here. I appreciate your full participation in our classroom community where we always give our best, our best keeps getting better, and we help each other to achieve our collective and individual goals as learners.
Parents, I believe that although upper high school level students are moving towards independence, communication with parents is still very important. Juniors and seniors have varying levels of maturity and decision-making skills are still developing. It is my hope that we will work as a team to help keep our students on track for success in high school, which sets them up for success in life. Please feel free to contact me as situations arise or just to check in from time to time.
