English III is an in-depth study of U.S. literature and U.S. literary nonfiction, especially foundational works and documents from the 17th century through the early 20th century. At least one Shakespearean play may be included along with interdisciplinary informational writing and multimodal presentations focusing on speaking and listening skills.

 

Required Materials:  pen/pencil, paper, Chromebook

 

Classroom Rules

All of the rules from the student handbook apply to our classes.  In addition to those, there are three rules we stress for our classroom:

  1. Be on time
  2. Be prepared for class
  3. Be respectful of all people and property

 

Failure to follow these rules will result in these consequences:

  1. verbal remediation
  2. change of seat
  3. parent contact
  4. referral

 

 

Absences and make-up work

If a student is excused one day then that student is allowed three days to make up the work missed. It is the student’s responsibility to attain missed assignments/work.  The best time to see Mrs. Gordon about missed work is before school or after school.
