One of the major curricular shifts demanded by the Common Core for English Language Arts is a focus on writing from sources using evidence.

  • The CCLS requires that informational text, in particularliterary nonfiction, take on a more dominant role in high school English Language Arts classes than they have before.
  • Part 1 Reading Comprehension will includetwo to five informational and literature texts.
  • Part 2 Writing From Sources will generally consist of up to two to five informational texts, and/or graphics or one literature text.
  • Part 3 Text Analysis will include either an informational text ora literature text.

Our class is a paperless classroom. Therefore, the majority of the assignments will be completed on the tablets, unless otherwise specified by me.

  • Students who chose to use pen and paper are responsible for either printing the materials off the student drive on their own time or ordering a copy ahead of time from me.
  • You are responsible to access class notes/ assignments via the student handout drive.
  • Laptop use will be monitored; inappropriate use will result in a zero class work grade for that day.
grading policy
Grading Policy

Throughout the quarter students will accumulate points from being prepared to participate and from submitting homework assignments, class work assignments, essays, tests, quizzes, and projects on time. These assignments will be averaged together to determine their quarter grade.

At the end of each of the four marking periods, students will take a grade-wide Quarter Final Exam worth 25%.

This test will consist of:

  • A brief argument essay (50 pts)
  • Identification of correct usage: grammar and vocabulary (25 pts)
  • Reading comprehension questions based on new short readings (25 pts)

Within-Marking Period Assessments: points vary, based on current assignments, and unique to each teacher.

  • Literature unit quizzes & tests
  • Independent Reading quizzes
  • Vocabulary (in context text and Sadlier-Oxford workbook) and grammar quizzes
  • Formative assessments on argument writing

Your Quarter grade will be divided as follows:

  • Essays/ Tests 40%
  • Quizzes: 20%
  • End of Quarter Exam: 25%
  • Homework/ Class Work Assignments/ Class Participation & Preparedness: 15%

  • Homework is assigned four to five nights a week. To maintain a good average in class, homework must be completed.
  • All assignments are checked. Assignments and projects that are collected must be printed and ready to hand in at the start of the period in order to receive credit.
  • Late homework is unacceptable and will only be accepted the next day for a 65 with the proper heading.
