AP English Literature 5-6
Transcript of AP English Literature 5-6
Find your way. Love the challenge.
AP Literature 5-6 is a fast-paced, energetic, and intellectually challenging course that pushes students to read effectively, write efficiently, and analyze with ease. This is a two-semester class that fulfills one of the four English credits required for graduation. Our focus this year will be analysis of classic literature as well as exploration of contemporary readings. We will also study the Six Traits of Writing (with emphasis on Conventions), public speaking, and poetry in preparation for the Advanced Placement test in late spring.

STEPS FOR SUCCESS
1. BE RESPECTFUL. Show respect toward every person and all property in class. This includes showing respect for yourself. Appropriate language is also required here.
2. BE PUNCTUAL. Always be in your assigned seat and working before the tardy bell rings. You need to be in class, on time, and attentive in order to meet your potential in this class. Make good choices, and the rewards will come quickly.
3. BE PREPARED. Have all necessary materials and use them appropriately. Late work will not be accepted!
*Keep up with an assignment calendar. This could be your best asset.
4. PARTICIPATE. Actively follow instructions and engage yourself in the learning. This is an active learning environment so participation is encouraged, expected, appreciated, and rewarded.
5. FOLLOW PROCEDURES. Actively and consistently follow all the procedures in class. Ask questions if
you are unclear about any procedure. All FWHS rules apply in this classroom; check your handbook for more information. Yes, dress code is followed here.
1. As soon as you enter the classroom, begin the bell work. Follow directions explicitly because this is your first success of the day.
2. Late work will NOT be accepted, but most work isn’t deemed late until 4:00pm. My door is open. Come to me for help, or contact me through Edmodo.
3. Follow all FWHS and district procedures for tardies, dress code, cell phones, hats, drinks, food, language, and behaviors. Instead of fighting protocols, learn to express your individuality through your writing and thinking.
4.Everybody works everyday. You will develop academic vigor and rigor. Expect to think deeper, work faster, and find humor with every challenge.
5. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get the work you missed. Upon your return, visit the assignment area and collect all missing materials. I will be unable to interrupt the current day’s learning to discuss in detail what you have missed, so drop by Study Table. All made up work should be labeled as such.
7.Expect for active thinking and learning to become a habit.
