We read The Crucible aloud in class, helping the students with connections and motivations of the characters. 

A favorite quotes of mine from one of the greatest novels.

State testing can be overwhelming for many students, so I try to incorporate some preparation during English 3. Khan Academy is an excellent tool to help as well, click on the link.

Good luck Juniors!
