Hopefully, you all had exciting, eventful summers and you can use your experiences to enrich your writing of essays and reading of books. Through exposure to great works of literature in our English class this year, we will be connecting to universal truths about human nature. As you are all human, I expect that you will all be able to contribute greatly to discussions and written reflections on these works. Do not be afraid to bring your lives into the classroom!
