I've uploaded notes for chapters 20-22 of Things Fall Apart. You can find all TFA notes/videos on the tab under Week 1, but I'll also post them below:

Hello and welcome to week 1 of our distance learning module! First and foremost, I hope you all are well, calm, and safe. I look forward to seeing you all when we can healthily return to school, but in the meantime, I look forward to continuing to learn together from a distance.

Each week, I will update this page with new assignments. We will primarily be using StudentVUE to access resources for and submit assignments. 

In addition to the assignment postings in StudentVUE, I will summarize each week's goals and assignments on my teacher page with a weekly video. These videos will include relevant assignment information, direct instruction, and, at times, discussion questions for weekly assignments. This week's video explains general procedures while we are engaged in distance learning and the THREE ASSIGNMENTS FOR THIS WEEK:

1. Sell Me This Show
2. Finish Things Fall Apart. You should have already read up until the beginning of Part Three.
3. Come up with at least THREE analytical discussion questions pertaining to Part Three of Things Fall Apart. We will use these for next week's assignments.


YOU WILL HAVE AN ONLINE ASSESSMENT ACTIVITY FOR THINGS FALL APART NEXT WEEK. It will, of course, be open book, but before I assign this activity next week, I'd like to post a video addressing any questions you have about the novel. This can be something you found interesting and want to discuss, something you want more information on, or anything you didn't understand about the reading.

Welcome to Pre-AP English 9! Please find your course syllabus below. Most electronic class resources will be added to StudentVUE. If you have any questions, please contact me at
