Aug. 1, 2008 – Eng 8, 10, & Hum 8


Today was the first day of classes. We played the game “Two Truths, One Lie” to learn about one another. We all learned that Mr. Brammer enjoys flying glider planes but has never piloted his own airplane.

We covered the course syllabus, class expectations, and had a nice talk about wearing the school’s uniform appropriately.


Read through the course and bring the required supplies (one plastic folder, one notebook, pens & pencils, paper) to the next class session.

Extra Credit:

The first extra credit assignment is to register for this blog by leaving a comment below about what you hope to learn this year in class. UPDATE: This extra credit assignment is CLOSED.

    Hi sir! This is Lasmyr from 8A.

    This year, I would like to learn to perfect my grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I would like to learn to read in a group too. That’s for english. For humanities, I would like to know more about certain countries that I like (such as Philippines, Japan, Korea, Germany, etc.). I’d like to know more about places too.

    Yay!! I did extra credit. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Mr. Brammer
    Im Calvin.C from 8A
    This year I really hope that we can learn A lot about poetry and how to make them. because I’ve never learned English Poetry before.
    Also even though we learn geography I hope that we can still learn a little bit about history because I like world history.
    Well see you in Monday

    Hello Mr.Brammer, WOW! I think this blog will help a lot, especially for extra credit.hihihihih
    I hope that we can learn more about the writing techniques so that the outcome of our writings will be better and better, and also I’m not really good in definition of words and I hope I can learn more vocabulary to improve my English. That way I can get good scores in several lessons that requires to write.
    I’m looking forward to learn..
    “God Bless you”
