Welcome to the home for ALL of Ms. Neun's classes.
Current Unit 9th: Identity
Current Unit 10th: Political Rhetoric
As ELA courses are all about writing, I highly recommend the following handbooks/references:
- They Say, I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing
- Writer's Inc
- Writing with Style: Conversations on the Art of Writing (2nd edition works fine; I'm unsure if 3rd edition has any major changes)
NOTE: http://www.thriftbooks.com and http://www.textbookrush.com are both excellent sources for buying secondhand books/textbooks!
Google Classroom -Used for agendas, unit files, questions, etc.
Ms. Neun's ELA Success Tech Guide - What tech items students will need to succeed. Follow all instructions. (Parents: this is essentially the Open-House guide)
Contacting, Grades, Assignments, Calendar - All are done via JupiterGrades.
Resources + Unit Packets (both grades -Will have all resources needed for all units and grades.
Cell Phone Policy
Cell phones are to be on silent (NOT just vibrate) or shut off entirely during class and in your backpack. Not on a desk, or in a lap, or under your rear: IN YOUR BACKPACK!!! If a phone is seen, it will be taken by Ms. Neun. Phones can only be retrieved AFTER SCHOOL. Repeat offenders may find their phone sent to the office, with instructions that a parent must be present to retrieve it. Whining, crying, excuses, or outright defiance may result in students receiving a referral in addition to having their phone sent to the office. This is your warning.
