Welcome back to YIS – 2016-2017!

hello pic

Welcome back to YIS for the 2016-2017 academic year! I hope you all had a restful and refreshing summer break. I am looking forward to seeing all my old students as well as meeting new students – I hope you will all enjoy YIS!

I will be sharing individual student folders with you shortly, which you will use to organise your files and submit work. In the meantime, you might like to bookmark this blog. Also, don’t forget to add the subject share folder to your Google Drive – it is how I share everything with the class so it is really important!

This is a good starting point, but as we work through the year you will need to check out the relevant page for the unit you will be studying. Go:

Choose your class —> Grade X —–> Unit X to find the correct unit page. Units are split into individual lessons, which you can click on the links for. Extra resources are also included on these pages.

I am looking forward to a very exciting year!

Welcome to Mr Hutton’s English classes at YIS! (2015-2016)

A hearty welcome to all my students from grade 7 to 11!  We have been working hard to redevelop our units of inquiry and we think we have some exciting things in store for you.

Because of this redevelopment, you may find some empty pages on my blog. Uh oh!  Please excuse this as I will be rebuilding my unit pages as we go.

In the meantime, you can check out the year overview page for your grade, which should have all the information you need.  If not, shoot me an email at huttona@yis.ac.jp and I will help you out!  I have put the hyperlinks below, however you can also access the pages by going to my blog –> ‘Choose Your Class’ –> “Grade XX English’ –> selecting relevant page.  I have also put the links to our class share folders, so please add the relevant one to your drive for easy access to resources. This folder is pretty important as this is how I will share most resources and assignments with you.
