Ms. Victoria Montes - English/Apex
Hello my name is Victoria Montes and I have been teaching at Monroe for ten years. I look forward each year to working with a new group of students. I am the English teacher. I have divided each class into writing assignements. Our first area of study is narrative essays. We will be reading works of narration in each text book and practice writing our own narrative essays. Each area of writing has its own vocabulary. For example the vocabulary linked to narrative essay writing is: theme, plot, point of view, conflict, setting, dialect, audience, story and character arches. There is a test at the end of each essay sections. The other writing areas are persuasive essays, expository essays, research papers, oral presentation. I will be publishing the curriculum guides so you can get an idea of how I have organized the material. Because we are interested in credit recovery an added component of literature and essay writing will be made available to all students upon request.
