This notebook is meant to facilitate your intellectual growth in writing and critical thinking.• Participation points will count for a portion of your grade.

Participation in the classroom will earn you points, and likewise, violationof the Classroom Expectations will lose you points.• Bathroom passes will be issued to every student—four per semester.

You may earn extra credit points for turning inpasses at the end of the semester.Writing Expectations• As an 11th-grade Honors student, you are expected to write at a critical and analytic level. Yourwriting is expected to be sophisticated in thought and vocabulary. In interpretive and analyticessays, writing must be in third person and be free of major grammar, spelling, or conventionerrors.

You are expected to use correct support for your statementsand provide insightful commentary to demonstrate your interpretation or analysis of a work.• Formal essays must be typed and formatted in MLA style.Tardy, Absences, and Late WorkYou must come to class on time, prepared for the day’s lesson.

Youwill have one day to make up an assignment for each excused absence. If you miss a test, it is yourresponsibility to have the test made up within a week of your absence. You need to make yourselfavailable for make-up tests. See me for an appointment. I will not accept late homework or classwork(not even if it’s in your locker or if you left it in your mom’s car). A major assignment (take-home essaysand projects) will receive a 10% deduction each day it is late.PlagiarismYou are expected to demonstrate academic honesty and personal integrity. If you are caught cheating,copying, or plagiarizing the work of others, you will receive a zero on the assignment and a referral to thevice principal. Plagiarism is defined as the undocumented use of three or more words in succession or anoriginal idea without proper citation. You should avoid the use of online sources (such as SparkNotes) toreplace a thorough reading of the text. The goal of this course is to enhance your skills, not to showcasesomeone else’s. You should be aware that plagiarism applies to both writing and oral presentations.I really look forward to being your teacher this year! If you have any questions or concerns about theclass (whether it’s your grade, something we went over in class, or an assignment), please do nothesitate to get in touch with me, either in person or via email. I will try my best to help you besuccessful this year.
