Expectations in an English Classroom


Expectations in an english classroom

  • You need to read the text you are assigned to read

  • It is ok not to understand everything in the text you are assigned to read

  • It is ok to have a discussion with your parents, or your friends or classmates about the text after you have read it

  • It is ok to come to class without having read the assignment, and to accept the consequences of choosing not to do the assignment


Expectations in an english classroom

It is not ok to “work together” on homework

that has not specifically

been designated as

group work.

Papers that show evidence

of “working together”

will both get a zero.


Expectations in an english classroom

You must complete the assignment

that is given to you.

It is not ok to “recycle” work

from a different class or assignment.


Expectations in an english classroom

It is not ok to read a summary of the text instead of the text


Expectations in an english classroom

It is not ok to “get some ideas” about the text by looking it up online


Expectations in an english classroom

In classes like Humanities, this includes using secondary sources (looking up information about the director or production of a film, reviews of an album, descriptions of a work of art, etc.) when you haven’t been told to do so for the assignment.


Expectations in an english classroom

It is not ok to read or consult any other kind of resource even after you have read the text in order to avoid having to think about the text and draw your own conclusions about it


No one said english had to be easy

No one said English had to be easy

  • It is a process

  • It is not a science or math class

  • The answers are not “in the book” or “on the page” the way they are in other classes

  • The answers come from thinking about what you have read and interacting with the text


You can not actually succeed in an english classroom without

You can not actually succeed in an English classroom without

  • reading the text

    and

  • thinking about the

    text


Expectations in an english classroom

Neither of these things can be done for you by other people


Expectations in an english classroom

No one can “give you the answers”

in English.

But your teacher can help you

learn how to figure them if you are willing to do the work it takes

“William Shakespeare”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Shakespeare

Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare's genius, and the Victorians hero-worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called "bardolatry".[5] In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.

Shakespeare's first plays were written in the conventional style of the day. He wrote them in a stylised language that does not always spring naturally from the needs of the characters or the drama.[126] The poetry depends on extended, sometimes elaborate metaphors and conceits, and the language is often rhetorical—written for actors to declaim rather than speak. The grand speeches in Titus Andronicus, in the view of some critics, often hold up the action, for example; and the verse in Two Gentlemen of Verona has been described as stilted.[127]

Soon, however, Shakespeare began to adapt the traditional styles to his own purposes. The opening soliloquy of Richard III has its roots in the self-declaration of Vice in medieval drama. At the same time, Richard’s vivid self-awareness looks forward to the soliloquies of Shakespeare's mature plays.[128] No single play marks a change from the traditional to the freer style. Shakespeare combined the two throughout his career, with Romeo and Juliet perhaps the best example of the mixing of the styles.[129] By the time of Romeo and Juliet, Richard II, and A Midsummer Night's Dream in the mid-1590s, Shakespeare had begun to write a more natural poetry. He increasingly tuned his metaphors and images to the needs of the drama itself.

William Shakespeare is a very famous playwright. He wrote many important works of both drama and poetry, and even though he died about 500 years ago, people are still able to relate to his work. In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance.

Shakespeare is especially known for his clever and innovative use of language. His writing is very complicated and his poetry depends on extended, sometimes elaborate metaphors and conceits, and the language is often rhetorical—written for actors to declaim rather than speak. Over his career, he used several styles of writing, depending on his subject matter and purpose. No single play marks a change from the traditional to the freer style. Shakespeare combined the two throughout his career, and Romeo and Julietis the best example of the mixing of the styles. This is when he had begun to write a more natural poetry. He increasingly tuned his metaphors and images to the needs of the drama itself.

Shakespeare is especially known for his clever and innovative use of language. His writing is very complicated and his poetry depends on comprehensive, sometimes complicated metaphors and self-importance, and the language is often symbolic —written for actors to utter rather than speak. Over his career, he used several styles of writing, depending on his subject matter and purpose. No single play marks a change from the traditional to the freer style. Shakespeare combined the two throughout his career, and Romeo and Juliet is the best example of the mixing of the styles. This is when he had begun to write a more ordinary poetry. He more and more tuned his descriptions and images to the needs of the drama itself.

William Shakespeare is a very famous playwright. He wrote many important works of both drama and poetry, and even though he died about 500 years ago, people are still able to relate to his work. His writing is constantly being read and performed as each new generation of scholars realizes it has something to offer.

Shakespeare is especially known for his clever and innovative use of language. His poetry uses deep and complex metaphors and symbolic language. Over his career, he used several styles of writing, depending on his subject matter and purpose. There is not really a defining play that shows the change between his styles, one traditional and the other freer because he combined them throughout his career. In Romeo and Juliet, for example, he mixed both styles in one play. It was around this time in his career when he began to use more ordinary language in his poetry and to make sure his plays made sense more as drama than as poetry.

“Putting it in your own words” is still plagiarism if the ideas or structure of the argument belong to someone else.
