English I Info.

Daily Assignment - Students are required to write a daily journal entry.  These will be graded on a nine week basis.  Students are not responsible for journal entries when they are absent for any reason.

I expect my students to ALWAYS bring a library book with them to class.  If they finish the daily assignment, I expect them to be reading.

Extra credit - I offer extra credit at various times.  I do offer extra credit for signed and returned progress reports. 

Progress Reports - I will hand these out on the 3rd, 5th, and 7th week of each nine weeks.
