News from the English Dept. - MHS

by Marilee Paillet

August 29, 2019

     The Miltonvale JH/HS English Department encompasses 7-12th grade as well as Yearbook.  The Yearbook staff started with a bang.  They have already chosen a theme, colors, fonts, and graphic designs, as well as selling ads in three towns.  The staff expects to produce an even better yearbook this year while trying out a new organization idea.  If you are interested in purchasing a past yearbook or the 2019-20 yearbook please call the high school at 427-3250.  There are several yearbooks available.

     Each week all the English classes are writing a description for a famous art piece to improve their descriptive writing. They are also reviewing the parts of speech.  They are also reading classic short stories and novels like “Beowulf,” “Flowers for Algernon,” Dracula, and Of Mice and Men.  Through their reading they are working on critical thinking skills, figures of speech, structure and diving into social issues such as bullying.  Have you read a classic lately?
