"Advanced Composition and Grammar (English II)"
College English, American Lit, Advanced Comp, & Survey of Literature Course Requirements Mrs. Morrell 2009-2010 Expectations: Class begins at the bell. At the bell, your computer is logged in and you have begun reading or writing the posted “bell work” assignment. Your computer is a class tool and a vital link to the work you and I do together here. Follow school policies. No games, chats, surfing, or inappropriate use of email. None! Ethical, honest behavior is expected of you at all times. Never compromise your integrity. You will be held accountable for cheating and “near” cheating. Class is over at the bell, not before. Remain seated. If you choose not to participate in class activities, you will be asked to close your computer. If you are warned about inappropriate computer use once, you will not get a second chance. I collect computers. Have pen and paper handy. Grades are based on... your participation, attention and effort; assigned written work (draft and final essays, journals, reports) quizzes, tests; class discussions/participation; and projects. An important note about grades: ☺ A self-assessment of your skills and progress will be shared at PTC’s. ☺ Missing papers and assignments receive a grade of 0, which is recorded on the date due. In order to avoid the 0 on DDN, you must communicate with me about the assignment at least 24 hours before the due date. ☺ In my classes, there is no “late work” policy. Work is due when it is due. I do not have to accept late work. Papers that you submit for grading or comments must be Typed; Titled; and Labeled correctly when attached to email messages. Special note: Organize your work in a folder dedicated to this class. You may want to set up subfolders for each major unit of study. The final exam is an “open note” assessment.
