Welcome to Mrs B. Cartwright's Homepage

Welcome

I hope you are looking forward to an exciting year of learning!

A major focus in my English classes is literacy; developing, growing, strengthening those reading and writing skills that are necessary for success, within these hallowed halls and beyond the school setting.  Using analytical skills to improve comprehension of text (self-selected books, short stories, movies, political cartoons, fiction, non-fiction), as well as the opportunity to create original text, are all part of what grade nine, ten, eleven and twelve students can expect.  High standards of quality, with students working towards goals of personal and academic improvement, are important elements in my class.  Classroom activities, assignments, and projects are closely tied to the curriculum as required by Alberta Education.

For more information on the Program of Studies:  https://education.alberta.ca/programs-of-study/programs-of-study/

For all English classes, reading books selected by the student is part of our daily schedule.  Please come prepared with reading material, hard copy (paper) or e-reader for each and every English class.  Choice of reading material can be fiction or non-fiction; novels, magazines, graphic novel, etc. Students are allowed to read using e-readers, but phones and computers are not acceptable during the time set aside for reading.

Materials required for English include; pens, pencils, glue, scissors, pencil crayons, and Hilroy Exercise Books.  Hilroy Exercise Books are available at Staples or Walmart.  Please buy the lined page books.  The Hilroy Exercise Books are for daily assignments and novel studies.
