Welcome to ELA Enrichment 7!
Ms. Eddleston/ ELA Enrichment 7
Please TAKE and KEEP your textbook(s) HOME to use as needed for the school year. J There is a classroom set of books for students’ use. Your assigned book is your responsibility! If it is lost, damaged, or stolen, expect to be charged for the book’s value. There is also a charge for rebinding a book.
WRITTEN WORK FORMAT:
All tests, quizzes, and final copies of papers should be completed in blue or black ink -no pencil, please. Pencil and other dark colorful inks may be used for routine class exercises and homework.
Submit your work on the paper or hand-out passed out during class, or on 8 ½ x 11 lined paper. Please kindly remove any ripped notebook edges. Assignments are expected to be free of stains, folds, and wrinkles. Please do not scribble over errors.J Please erase, recopy, or use White Out to correct your work. Extra copies of some assignments may be available; see the extra hand-outs box in class.
Please use the following heading on all assignments:
1st line: Full Name Date
2nd line: Block Subject
3rd line: Assignment
Be on time. Bring necessary materials. Please expect to write daily, so please bring a needed writing utensil. Please be courteous, listen to others, and allow everyone the right to speak, to hear, and to be heard. At the end of class, please remain seated until the bell rings.
Grades will be based on a combination of homework, quizzes, and tests. Homework counts as 1/4 of your grade, so please take it seriously! See my website for test/quiz retake rules and requirements~ J
Work missed because of legitimate, excused absences must be made up within one week (five school days); beyond a week, the grade(s) will be recorded as zero unless you see me to discuss the issue. See me for a list of absent assignments. You are responsible for material covered in class: discussions, notes, videotapes, etc.
All homework is due on the following school day. Starting on Oct. 15th, homework will only be accepted one day late, but will still receive full credit (100%) if completed accurately. If homework is not received on the second day, the grade will be recorded as zero. Please do not ask me for a list of “owed assignments” near the end of a marking term. Please provide a signed note for special circumstances; I do realize life happens. J
Only when a Home-Reading Log is assigned, students are expected to read for at least twenty minutes from a non-content area text (No, you cannot read your science book.). Please follow the directions on the home-reading log form to document this at-home reading. The log must be signed by a parent or guardian to receive homework credit.
You are expected to keep a 1” notebook (three-ring binder) containing all work, tests, and quizzes. Your notebook should be brought to class daily. Your notebook should have five separate labeled sections for tests, quizzes, vocabulary definitions, home-reading log, and story assignments in the order as listed.
There will be a notebook check each quarter. The grade will be counted as a test grade, and averaged in with your test grades for the quarter.
Agenda Recommended Your agenda/assignment notebook should be brought to class and then taken home daily! All homework assignments, test and quiz dates, and project due dates should be written in your agenda. MY CONTACT INFORMATION:
