ONE WRITES OUT OF ONE THING ONLY - ONE'S OWN EXPERIENCE. EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON HOW RELENTLESSLY ONE FORCES FROM THIS EXPERIENCE THE LAST DROP, SWEET OR BITTER, IT CAN POSSIBLY GIVE. THIS IS THE ONLY REAL CONCERN OF THE ARTIST, TO RECREATE OUT OF THE DISORDER OF LIFE THAT ORDER WHICH IS ART. - James Baldwin

If you have any questions at all regarding extra help, homework, or the Language Arts generally, please do not hesitate to ask. We will be using HAIKU for all classroom communication. 

ENGLISH II HONORS - 2016/2017

IB-HL/AP ENGLISH III - 2016/2017

During the school day, I am available periods 3 and 8 in the LOBBY. I try to stay after most days, but I will always be in my room after school every MONDAY in room C21.

Outside of school, e-mail is my primary point of contact. I check my school e-mail (jbraccino@wmrhsd.org) throughout the day. You can also follow me on twitter @MrBraccino.

College Recommendations

It is an honor to write you a letter of recommendation. Please take it seriously and meet the requirements below. Failure to do so may cause a delay or cancelation of your letters being sent. Please see me with any questions or problems.

Spring of Junior Year

Ask me in person before you leave for the summer

* Please consider your overall performance in my course(s). Yes, I may have taught you multiple times, but please consider your performance and your engagement in my class. Colleges are looking for recommendations that showcase the unique, impressive, and interesting things I have seen you do in class. Please also consider that I will have to tell the whole truth about our time together!!!

* Because I teach Juniors and serve as an extracurricular advisor, I anticipate many requests for letters. Because I cannot write letters forever, there is an element of first-come, first-serve here. Be wary.

Early Fall of Senior Year

Know your deadlines. Do NOT hand me a form and envelope on Thursday when the deadline is Friday. Three weeks is an appropriate amount of lead time. More is appreciated.

*ALL MUST COMPLETE: Please submit to me in an envelope the following documents:

a copy of your resume

a short, written piece identifying and reflecting on your time and performance in my class(es)

deadlines for application and which way you will need me to submit forms (electronic or postal mail).

*Please remember to invite me on Naviance!!!
