On this page you will find information regarding Ms. Vargas’s English II and English III classes. This site is in progress, so bear with me as I build it.
Syllabus & Supply List:
English II Syllabus
The standing homework assignments are to keep up with the outside novel (participation grades to check for comprehension will occur each Monday, with quizzes every 2-3 weeks) and to work on the college research essay, as students only have Fridays to work on them in class, which will most likely not be enough time to complete the sections thoroughly. On a daily basis, students may need to finish up classwork that they did not have time to complete.
