Class Contracts and Supply List

Supply List

 Mrs. Rawson

English III and English IV  

  The following is a list of optional supplies to be used by each student.  There is no requirement that a parent provide these materials, however the students would make good use of these items.    

Student Tools: 3 Ring Binder       Spiral Notebook           Loose-Leaf Paper                   

Organizational Items: 

Dividers 

 If students wish to use a 3 ring binder, they may use the same binder for more than one class.  I will frequently give students important handouts.  Most handouts will be hole-punched so they can be easily placed in a 3 ring binder, but any notebook with pockets will help students stay organized.

Students are required to complete journal assignments each day. These assignments will be collected and graded every nine weeks.  Students are encouraged to keep these assignments in a notebook. A small, spiral notebook with holes would best.  This type of notebook can be placed in a 3 ring binder and easily removed when journals are collected.   If students wish to use a 3 ring binder for notes, class work, and journal entries, dividers separating each section would help keep students organized.
