Throughout our study of American Literature, we will be exploring everything from Native American culture/writings to 20th century plays and novels (specifically The Great Gatsby and The Crucible). We will also dig deeper into the research process as we learn how to gather information to present in a written research paper.
Students also receive handouts with specific dates as well as verbal reminders and dates written on the board/calendar located in classroom. It is highly recommended that students create an organizational plan that will help them stay on top of due dates!
Please note on the grading policy -- late work policy is strictly enforced! Many of the written assignments are turned in via email -- I use the time stamp to enforce due dates.
