So you have Mrs. Deming as a teacher or adviser?For the advanced English student, 10 Honors gives students a chance to really explore the beginning of rhetoric, rhetorical appeals, the author's message, author's purpose, writing for task, exploring tone, mood, voice, and looking at writing and writers who use punctuation for effect. Students do this in a variety of ways from reading literature to looking at fun facts and interesting articles. They turn to television, speeches, the Internet, and novels to find and understand why writers write what they write. English 10H student's ultimate goal is to explore HOW author's are effective in their writing, then take those observations and apply them to their own writing.Mrs. Deming's Classroom is like being whisked away to the movie set of Harry Potter. Light up candles hang from the ceiling, letters fly out of a fireplace, and students are asked to work with their Defense Against the Dark Arts partners. Their names are called from the sorting hat and students typically sit at one of the 4 houses: Griffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. Some students sit at Platform 9 3/4 or at the Ministry of Magic. All tables have black potion cauldron with supplies in them. Mrs. Deming has magical artifacts all over her classroom. She does this because she believes learning should be engaging and fun. So be ready, to join the magical fun in her classroom.
