Welcome To Room 221!

As the school year winds down please remember that it is important to get work completed on time and that if you hand something in late you do it as soon as possible.

 

High school is a great adventure, but it can also be a bit daunting; especially to incoming freshmen and their parents. With this in mind, there are some questions that you each need to keep in mind as the year progresses-

  • Where do I stand with my English Credits?
    • Don't forget, you will need a total of 40 credits in English to graduate, this means that you need to pass English every semester.
    • If you have failed a semester of English you must attend summer school to makeup the credit. 
    • Student taking two English classes at a time during the regular school year are very rarely successful passing their English classes.
  • What happens if I should fail an English class?
    • More often than not, students fail English because they are not completing homework and classwork assignments and/or are not turning in assignments on time. Make sure that your are turning in ALL assignments, even if they are a few days late. Remember you only have 2 weeks to turn in late assignments, after that they are entered as ZEROs in the gradebook..
    • Homework and Classwork each are worth 25% of your grade, together they account for 50% of your grade.
    • Don't forget, your notebook is 20% of your grade. This is another area that students often neglect.
  • What can I do to get a better grade?
    • Make sure to complete all assignments and to turn them in on time.
    • Late assignments need to be turned in as soon as possible to get the most possible points, again, you only have 2 weeks to do this before a late assignment is entered in the gradebook as a ZERO.
    • Ask questions about work you are unsure of. The only dumb question is the one you didn't ask!
    • When asked to do a rough draft do it! You would be amazed how much better your writing will be if you actually do a rough draft and have someone read over it with you before doing a final draft.
    • Do your homework and class assignments, they are both equally important.
    • Keep your agenda up to date, these are easy points and they add up in the end.
    • Be sure to complete each Picture-A-Day journal entry, again these points add up.
    • Is your notebook neat and orderly? This is another place that can give your grade a boost. Each notebook check is worth 200-300 points.
  • Where can I get extra help with my English assignments?
    • Tutoring- at this time there isn't any tutoring offered for English.
    • Students are always welcome to come to my room during lunch for extra help, don't forget your lunch!
    • Students can also make arrangements to meet with me before school and/or after school. I am usually in my classroom by 7:30 every morning. 

The best advice I can give you for being a successful student if for you to-

BE RESPONSIBLE AND DO YOUR BEST EVERY DAY, IT WILL PAY OFF IN THE END!
