If you have built castles in the air,
your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be.
Now put the foundations
under them.

- Henry David Thoreau

This website is an artifact from the past. Browse through its pages and you'll find many activities and lessons from English classes that I taught at Battle Creek Central High School between 2002-2007.

Intially, after I decided to stay home with my daughters, I left this site in place since I knew that many other English teachers relied on its resources (such as the TFA webquest and the research paper handouts).

The internet is not a static place, though, and some of the websites upon which those assignments relied are no longer in business. I have chosen to leave those broken links in place rather than delete the entire assignment so that visitors such as yourself can get a sense of what overall website was like.
