Yep! Although if her 11th grade curriculum is anything like mine was when I was in high school (and it varies from state to state and from school district to school district even) mine was all about American History. So we had American Literature and American History that year for our English and Social Studies classes.

It would have to be better than shakespear and the great gatsby. we had to do them the last couple of years in school, along with a host of morbid poetry by emily dickenson and patrick kavanagh.

I can't remember what grade we did Gatsby in. But we did Shakespeare every other freaking year. I was SUPER excited not to have to do Shakespeare in 11th grade. Lol. 3 out of 4 years was plenty. I think we did Poe in 9th grade. I could be off on that. The grades really seem to run together 10-14 years later. Lol.

Yep, it's American lit. All I know for sure is The Crucible, The Scarlet Letter, and The Great Gatsby. I'll get my pacing guide and all that jazz not this coming week but the next week.



I actually wanted to do 9th grade so I could do intro to Shakespeare and Romeo and Juliet lol. I found out after I already had my interview scheduled that one of my good friends from high school is going to be teaching 9th grade English at the same school as me, so we'll be together :) I'm pretty excited!

Yeah your curriculum sounds identical to what mine was then. We did Romeo and Juliet in 9th grade.



We didn't read Scarlet Letter but I heard other classes did. We did read The Crucible and Gatsby.



And MandY in Ireland, we did Othello my 12th grade year.
