Greetings parents and students, to another school year at Bishop Alemany High School. My mission this year is to teach the students new reading strategies which will help them access the information needed to comprehend the myriad of Literature genres we will be studying. Also included in this quest is a need to enhance their ability to express themselves in the written form. To that end each class will produce several written assignments for assessment this semester. They will be exposed to different types of essays-- essays they will encounter when they begin their college years. It is my hope that I can give them a greater appreciation for the written word and to better prepare them for the next step in the education.
