• Welcome to the Grade 9 English page!     

     I am Ms. Henderson, and I teach 5 sections of English on our campus.

    Our school serves students by helping to develop graduates who think at a more sophisticated level. Note that the curriculum is rigorous, and it is being implemented by all high schools in New Jersey.


    So you are aware, the following represents the courses I am teaching in 2023-2024. 

    - English 9 CP/ICR (2 sections)  *With my fabulous team teacher Ms. Susan Anglum  (anglums@mcmsnj.net)
    - Pubic Speaking/Creative Writing (2 sections)
    - English 12 CP
       This year, our school district is continuing to embrace 21st Century technology.  As such, we are asking that students take advantage of Remind, a free and anonymous text-messaging platform that reminds students of upcoming due dates, as well as the expanding Google technology.  Expect your student to be working with Google Classroom, Common Lit, Kahoot, Ed Puzzle, and other excellent tools to help them engage in the learning process. 
    To get into Google Classroom, you must use your school (mcmsnj.net) email address.
    Over the course of the year, students will be challenged with completing at least one project each marking period , which relates to the theme to be discussed during each quarter.
    Throughout the year, we will also be dedicating time enhancing writing skills.  Time will be spent developing the ability to critically write and respond to queries that cross the curriculum, strengthening effective mechanics, and we will be striving to approach our responses to texts with replies that require use of higher order thinking skills.

     If at any time you have questions, don't hesitate to contact me at hendersonr@mcmsnj.net or 732~985~0717X2200.
