Welcome to Semester Two! #eng3u #eng4c #eng4u

Hello, and welcome to semester two at GCHS!

I am excited for many great opportunities this semester. While it will undoubtedly be a busy semester, my hope is that students find classes engaging and relevant. We’ll be going over a variety of literature, writing, communication techniques, and media studies in each course as we deepen our understanding of voice, purpose, and audience. We’ll read and write both fiction and non-fiction in various forms, we’ll have some great discussions, and we will gain an appreciation for all things English.
