    Welcome to Bainbridge High School and English 9. I am excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year.  This year I will be teaching English 9 first period at BHS and the rest of my time will be spent at Sakai Intermediate School in my continued role as Instructional Coach and Differentiation Specialist.
    We will begin our year with a Southern Gothic Fiction narrative unit, followed by a free choice reading and Scholastic Writing Contest short unit, and then close the semester with a literary analysis argument writing unit centered around Romeo and Juliet and tiered book group options focused on loyalty and betrayal.
    More Information about English 9 
    Over the past two years, the English 9 team has redesigned the curriculum to wrap the core units around conceptual lens frameworks.  Each major assignment contains tiered options to meet the needs of all of the learners in the room. Students have the option to choose assignments that include extra support or an extension.
