Mr. John Doll
Welcome to my Hibriten Webpage. As a proud Panther alum, I am looking forward to all that this upcoming year has to offer. While it will be different than other school years, one thing will always remain the same - whether it's your first year or your fiftieth, you are now and forever a member of the Hibriten Panther family. The English Department here has been building, developing, strengthening, and supporting the written and spoken language skills of teenage scholars for more than fifty years, and it is as much a vocation as it is a career. You see, I love the English language - grammar, poetry, drama, and all the great prose literature that adds depth to our existence. My grandmother was an English teacher, my mother was a librarian, and I am entering my 18th year (14th at Hibriten) teaching something I truly enjoy. Please be in touch with any concerns, suggestions, or feedback, and I promise to do all I can to help students grow in their appreciation of English Language Arts.

Parents: I invite you to accept my Google Classroom invitation. so you can have access to your learner's Classroom assignments. Also, you can visit the Hibriten Homepage to gain access to your learner's Powerschool account which is their official grade scoresheet.
As the first exposure to high school English, Communication Skills introduces students to the basics of grammar, literary terminology, genres of literature, vocabulary, and oral presentation. While these may seem like daunting topics, students will begin with a comprehensive study of grammar and composition as a precursor to other skills development.
English III Honors
English III is the journey into the literature of the Americas. From native legends to the modern era, this class will focus on the triumphs and struggles that are uniquely American. An emphasis will be placed on vocabulary and writing development as well as textual analysis and thematic discussion.
