Laura L. Link
English II and ACT Prep Instructor
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! In English II, we will be learning to be better readers and better writers. We will read Macbeth, To Kill a Mockingbird and Night. Sharpen your pencils, and get ready for a year of writing! In addition to quite a bit of writing, students will be reading EVERY DAY at home. In ACT Prep, we will prepare for the pre-ACT and ACT by focusing on the Pyramid of Prep: Strategies, Mechanics and Content. Last year's students saw a 4.5 point increase on their reading scores and a 3.3 point increase on their English scores.
I have been teaching since 2006, and in that time I have had the pleasure of instructing freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors in classes such as English, Reading, Writing for College Success, Yearbook, Journalism and ACT Prep. Before becoming a classroom teacher, I was a professional journalist.
Please visit this website often. Parents SHOULD CHECK STUDENTS' GRADES weekly and contact me if you have any questions. The calendar tab will show you assignments and due dates, so you can be prepared even if you miss a day of school. Go Skippers!
