    SYLLABUS, CLASSROOM REQUIREMENTS AND EXPECTATIONS

     A. SYLLABUS

         As an educator, it is my goal to aid in the development of our students into effective readers and writers. In order for our students to improve upon these skills, we will be analyzing multiple texts, including novels, articles, and plays. Students will become strong writers by interpreting these texts, utilizing text details and creating a final product to showcase their understanding of the topic. 

     

    B. Student Expectations:

          -Be on time and prepared for class

          -Complete all assignments

          -Keep an organized binder

          -Participate in class activities

          -Respect others at all times

          -Follow all school rules

     

     CClass Materials:

    You will be required to bring the following

         items to class with you each day:

    3-ring binder with 5 dividers and loose leaf paper

    Dividers should be labeled as follows:

    Literature

    Grammar

    Writing

    Vocabulary

    Tests/ Quizzes

    Blue/ black pens only, highlighter(s)

    A box of colored pencils

    A book of your choice to bring to class for independent reading.

    1 composition notebook

    Headphones to be kept in the classroom for usage with the chrome books. (This can be purchased at the dollar store)

    Optional: A box of tissues for the classroom – Thank you!

     

    D. Homework:

    Homework will be posted on my teacher website along with the due dates.

     

    E.  Work missed due to absence:

    It is the responsibility of the student to find out what

              he/she missed and to make arrangements to make up that

              work. If an announced test or quiz was missed, it is

              expected the student will make it up the day he/she

              returns to class. Assessments are announced at least

              several days in advance.

    Any student who is in the building, but misses class due to

              music lessons, health office visit, etc., must see me before

              leaving school for class and homework assignments.

     

    F. Grade Breakdown:

    Quarterly grades will be created using the

                                        following:

                                       -Quizzes

                                       -Homework

                                       -Tests

                                       -Class participation

                                       -Binder check
