Hello, students and parents! Welcome to Mrs. Leininger's English class! Whether you are taking English II, English I, or a gifted English class, my goal is to extend to you my love of literature and writing. My teaching style is very student oriented, as I want the students to take charge of their learning. I hope everyone enjoys their time in my class this semester. It will be challenging but fun! 



Welcome to class! We will begin the semester learning how to properly format essays in MLA format. We will then move on to rhetorical devices: their meaning and purpose. Students will practice with rhetorical devices by analzying advertisements and writing their own speeches! Out first novel will be To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. If you plan on purchasing the novel yourself, you will need it by January 15.
