End Of Year Reflection

This year in honors English I learned many lessons about topics such as literature, grammar, and themes in stories. Not only did I learn academic lessons but I learned many life lessons as well. I learned how to work better with others. I learned how to prepare for trials from the mock trial we did. I also learned how to have good discussions with my peers, from doing the class debates.
