9th grade MYP English
The first 4 pages of your journal are for the table of contents.
Each assignment must have the following, at the top of the page, that matches the assignment entry in the table of contents:
date, title of assignment, and page number
Date Title of the Assignment Page Number
The purpose of 9th grade MYP English:
To establish a community of active learners who work hard and give their best effort everyday. Students will develop better reading, writing, speaking and thinking skills to prepare themselves for a vast array of future opportunities.
We value collaborative efforts and the learning that occurs with shared study. Students will have many opportunities to work together and turn in products that grow from combined strengths, BUT the work in your Response Journal, and elsewhere, must be your own. Any sharing or copying of material in the journal will have consequences. More on plagiarism later-
Students will be graded on the following:
Summative assessments- the BIG stuff (essays, portfolios, exams)
Formative work- the PRACTICE for the big stuff
Summative Assessments that are not turned in on time will result in the student receiving an “incomplete” in the class. “Incomplete” grades are equal to “no credit” for the class.
Students may make arrangements with the me to earn credit. This will result in a deduction of points/percentage depending on how many days/weeks it is late.
Students are encouraged to turn work in on time. Priority for teacher feedback is given to those who meet deadlines.
