Mr.Wirgler's English Class (2020-2021)

  • Welcome! 

    This website is currently a work-in-progress and will be updated as I continue to develop my lessons with the changing school structure. As always, my goal is to challenge students to think critically, analyze the world around them, and apply their skills to modern day issues and topics.

    DISTANCE LEARNING INFO:

    Currently in development. Possibly a combination of Google Docs, Office 365 and Canvas. I am always looking into the most effective and relevant tools to use for my classroom. Being able to work digitally is increasingly important and having access to technology is a priceless tool in today's world.
