Mrs. Ashley Ramirez
Welcome to my class. This is my 12th year teaching and my 12th year at Destrehan High School. I am looking forward to another great school year at DHS! I will be teaching Dual Enrollment English IV, English II, and Pre-AP English II this year. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the course content/expectations. Geaux Wildcats!
We will frequently use Turnitin.com to submit assignments and check for originality/plagiarism. An account was set up the first week of school. If the handout was misplaced, please see the attachment below:
SUMMER READING INFORMATION:
English II and Pre-AP English II-This year at DHS, all English II students were required select one of three novels and complete the accompanying assignment. Their novel options were Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys and Exposure by Kim Askew. Honors' students were also required to read William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. The Google Classroom code to access the Summer Reading Google Classroom is: mvv4rxd. This information was given to all students at the end of their freshmen year, was sent home during the summer with schedules, and has been on the DHS website since the end of May.
All of my assingments, materials, and readings will be posted to our Google Classroom. Each class has a Google Classroom and parents/guardians are encouraged to join. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an invitation. I will also be sending home the code to access each classroom.
