Hello, I'm

Hand with magic rainbow

Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year.  My name is Lyn Peticolas,
and I teach ELA I and Pre-AP ELA II. 
It is my privilege to teach at Austin High School.  

Students in English I continue to develop reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing skills.  Students will read with understanding, and complete written compositions on a regular basis, using the writing process.  Students also edit their work for clarity, engaging language, and correct usage of the conventions and mechanics of written English.  Using a variety of learning strategies, students will work together in small groups, individually, and in pairs.

Students in Pre-AP English II continue to develop reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing skills. 

Students will

  • read with understanding, utilizing a variety of strategies.
  • regularly plan, draft, and complete written compositions using the writing process.
  • edit papers for clarity, engaging language, and correct usage of the conventions and mechanics of written English.
  • improve upon problem solving skills.
  • develop close/critical reading skills.
  • develop the skills needed to participate in, and successfully complete, project-based learning units of study, using the Pre-AP ELA II curriculum as a springboard.

Pre-AP moves at a faster pace than English II.  You will have homework many days and, at times, will be working on a project and reading novels outside of class. Dedication to keeping up with work is crucial for success in a Pre-AP class.

Pre-AP ELA II students were given access to our Edmodo group at the end of the school year 15-16.  Please contact me immediately if you believe you are in Pre-AP ELA II and do not have the summer reading assignment.  Additionally, all Pre-AP ELA II students need to join my Edmodo group.  Contact me for more information:  mlpetico@episd.org. Thank you.
