This year, in English I, we will be creating literacy notebooks to use throughout the year. This notebook will serve as a reference guide to assist in improving the overall growth and meta-cognition in students’ learning. All reading and writing lessons will be added to the notebook, with the expectation that all students maintain its accuracy. Additionally, we will be taking expository, persuasive, and reflective/narrative essays through the writing process using our knowledge learned through multiple mini lessons (thesis statement, comma rules, sentence variety, etc.). All acquired concepts will be assessed through multiple-choice tests, formal essays, and independent or group projects. Lastly, the students will also complete a district/state exam- demonstrating their mastery of comprehension and application skills they have internalized throughout the school year.

Daily Grades (Formatives)
Class Work/Homework/Quizzes, etc. (40%)

Absences and Make-Up Work
It is the student’s responsibility to check for missed work. Students will have one day to turn in missed assignments for each day of absence.
- If you miss a test or project due date, you must take the test or turn in the project the day you return.
The student is responsible for any work missed due to tardiness and/or absences. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the work from the teacher, complete it and submit the work within the period noted in the HHS Parent/Student Handbook. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in a grade deduction or loss of credit for the given work.
Cell Phone Policy
Please put all electronic devices away (unless otherwise instructed or used for instructional purposes.)
Cell Phones - Student Use
All teachers will consistently adhere to a classroom cell phone policy that is clear and posted/visible in the classroom. In the 9th Grade Academy, cell phones are not allowed during class time.
Plagiarism will not be tolerated by students and will result in a zero and or other disciplinary actions. (Please see the District Handbook).
Assignments and tests must be completed and submitted on the assigned due date in order to receive full credit. Work turned in after the designated deadline will receive a grade deduction of 10 points per day for each day their assignment is late (as per district policy). Homework is considered late if it is not turned in at the beginning of class.
A student who receives a summative grade below 70% may be eligible for one retest. Before a student can retest, he/she must attend a tutorial session for re-teaching. Retests are given outside of class time, such as tutorials, preferably no later than one week from the date the original test was given.
Tutorials are scheduled for every Wednesday after school from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm. This is not a social hour. If you attend tutorials, you must come with a specific question, assignment, or concept on which you would like assistance.
Expectations for Learning
You will be expected to read, write and collaborate with your peers every day in this class. At times, both reading and writing will be expected to be completed outside of the classroom. Over the course of this year, we will read two novels in their entirety. A copy of each will be available to you, but you may purchase your own copy to annotate if you choose.
The world of literature is one of ideas, so the protection of someone’s original ideas is of the utmost importance. Thus, in this class, you will be expected to always avoid plagiarism. Plagiarism can take many forms, such as:
- Trying to take someone’s ideas as your own
- Copying someone’s work verbatim without proper permission or citation
- Failing to put a quote in quotation marks
- Turning someone else’s work in as your own
- Copying more than five distinct words from a source without proper quotation marks and citation
We will discuss plagiarism at length throughout this year. Plagiarism will not be tolerated at any time. Any student who turns in plagiarized work will receive an automatic zero on that assignment, regardless of assignment grade weight.
