Reading: Students will be required to complete all reading assignments. Most of the reading assignments will be from the textbook, Elements of Literature: Sixth Course Essentials of British and World Literature.
Writing: All typing/writing must be done at school. Every unit will have a writing assignment included. Reading the literature is very important in order to complete the writing assignments. Be certain to save all work to your network folder to prevent it from being lost or get a personal folder/binder to have for your written work.
Vocabulary/Grammar/Spelling: We will have vocabulary and spelling quizzes every other week (Week 1 vocabulary, Week 2 spelling). Grammar lessons will be taught during the week as we are reading our literature or completing a writing assignment.
Grading: Tests will count as 60% of your grade. Quizzes (which count as two daily grades) and daily work will count as 40%. The end-of-course exam will count as 20% of your overall grade (course average).
