In my 9th grade course, we conduct Achieve 3000; Achieve is a program to improve reading. I can print articles from this site at any reading level for my tutoring. Today, in 10th grade we worked on the study of "Antigone". We analyzed the subject of Justice. In 11th grade, we are studying "Their Eyes were Watching God". This novel shows the difference between slang (vernacular/colloquialism) and formal English. This expands on the author, Hurston's, theme of the difference between her struggle between white culture and black culture in the 1930's. She shows her education and determination, as well as her cultural roots.
