English  IV                  

English IV completes the global perspective initiated in English II. Though its focus is on European (Western, Southern, Northern) literature, this course may include important U.S. documents and literature (texts influenced by European philosophy or action). At least one Shakespearean play may be included. Interdisciplinary informational text and multimodal presentations will encompass the writing, 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.
