JOY HENDERSON

Welcome to English I!

Hello, I am J. Lynn Henderson and I teach English 1.  English 1 is a required class for graduation, and it also has an End-of Course or LEAP test that must be mastered.  As a result, my expectation is for all students to pass my course and pass the End of Course exam. I strive for success for all students.  English 1 can be challenging for many students; however, I am always willing to help with tutoring.  I can tutor students Monday through Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30.  Students are also allowed to retest if they want a better grade.  My emphasis is on LEARNING and often students learn at different times within the semester.

 

Our course content is composed mostly of reading and writing.  Our readings are followed by multiple choice questions that are in the format of their end-of-course exam.  No one likes surprises, so we want your student exposed to the format of questioning they will see at the end of the course.  The same principle applies to the writing prompts.  The prompts are very similar to what will be expected on the test.

 

Parents, please feel free to email me if you need anything or you want to schedule a conference. My conference period is 9:30 to 11:00 and I'd love to hear from you.
