    Planning Calendar- Check the calendar for assignments. You are also responsible for writing the dates in your agenda/notebook when they are given to you in class. 
    Tutoring-T, Th and F-8:15-8:45am. Please notify me in advance as I may be called for a meeting or a conference.
     
    Grade Recovery Plan... Students must speak with me about making up the work within a week of missing it. After that they will not be able to make it up. All make up work can be completed before 8am with an appointment or after school, until 4pm.  Students can earn additional points by extra participation in class and doing their very best. Keeping me aware of what is going on and their struggles so I can assist them is also an expectation. 
     
    Progress Reports- Parents you can check the calendar to see when they have been given to your student. Progress Reports will be given every 3 weeks. .
    .
    10th Grade Text Book-Prentice Hall Literature -World Masterpieces, Penguin Edition. (Blue)  We will also use  supplementary novels and texts. 
    World Literature- World Literature will be the focus of study in the 10th grade. Special emphasis will be placed on literary elements, style and analyzing. Topics for essays, discussions, and seminars will be taken from the texts and from other sources such as speeches, articles, film clips, etc. Vocabulary study will encourage a broader use in writing and speaking while writing will include the study of effective sentence structure, mechanics and usage. A strong emphasis will be on Constructed Responses. Students are expected to take notes and annotate articles on a regular basis. We will also integrate the Arts in our course of study.
     Outside Reading -Students are required to have a book of choice with them at all times. This will be  assigned the first day of school. They may use the school library or home to find this book.
