Welcome to Ms. McKenna's Page
7th and 8th Grade English
Welcome to room 230! This is the place for digging deep into literature and nonfiction works, and most importantly, for reading GREAT books. Students in my class learn about writing to entertain, to inform, and to persuade, and they create short stories, articles, and essays. We also study Greek and Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes.

I have an undergraduate degree in theatre and have directed many, many plays throughout my career. So this year I am thrilled to announce that we have a new drama elective at Schoenbar! Seventh and eighth graders will work with me as actors, dancers, techies, and designers to create some unique performance pieces.
