Likely cause
Overexposure to stupidity.

To prevent my untimely demise
You all have brains. Please use them.

Contrary to popular belief, there are such things as stupid questions:
1. What are we doing today?
2. Can we have a free day?
3. Can I borrow a pencil?
4. Is this going to be graded?
5. How many more slides are there?
6. Do we need to bring our book next class?
7. Do we need to write this down?
8. Could you repeat that?

These are just a few, the list gets longer every year...
Don't contribute to this list.
Not here...
I ain't about that life in the big city, yo.
But here...
I'm from the trees and the sticks.
More specifically, here...
a.k.a. the middle of flippin' nowhere
Don't ever go here.
There's nothing historic or exciting about it.
This sign is all that's there, I promise you.
Rules & Regulations
I'm what you would call, a degree whore...

Let's Keep It Simple
If you want to survive English 3/3H:
I was a 3-sport athlete in High School
My sports: Soccer, Basketball, and Baseball
Three words that "offend" me:
Basically, I don't want to hear these words uttered at all
The "R-word"
The "N-word"
The "C-word"
Fourth word that I semi-include:
(But I must admit, I slip up from time to time)
The "F-word"

2 seasons
Head Coach Boy's JV Soccer (
2 seasons
Assistant Coach Girl's Softball (

English 3 & English 3 Honors
American Literature
No doubt most, if not all of you, are at least somewhat familiar with the story “Freedom Writers.” Well what I like to do is a version of this story. One of your main yearlong assignments will be maintaining a journal.

And just like anything else you do in school there are rules and stipulations that must be followed in order for you to receive
full credit

This is not an optional assignment.

It is mandatory
Words of the Day
What do I write about?
How long should my entries be?
For how long and when do I write?
What should every entry have?
You can write about
absolutely anything
for the most part, except for the following:
(anything illegal);
fighting/hurting someone
suicidal thoughts
- probably shouldn’t write negatively about Mr. P either, since he controls your grade

At least

half a page
for every entry
- Less than half a page will result in a deduction of points

At the
beginning of each class
for 7 and a half
every class
The date of that day's entry
If you happen to be absent one class and miss an entry,
you do not have to make up that entry
, you need to note your
absence in your journal.

I will not be checking the attendance record to see if you were present in class or not. If you fail to put that you were absent, I will assume you were present in class and that you chose not to write that day.
This is YOUR responsibility not mine.
Your journals will be graded
every 3 weeks
. The 3 week journal grade is out of
300 pts

So you're essentially receiving 100 points per week of journal entries.

I will be "reading" your entries, but not necessarily responding to what you say. I may add a response here and there on occasion, but it's very rare as I'll have 170+ journals to look at.
So don't expect comments.
Now look at the last page for Journals in your packet
This is another
yearlong assignment
This is a beneficial assignment to partake in as it challenges your academic vocabulary, and seeing as the SAT is a potential test you may be taking this year, it is a wonderful bit of practice to help you ace the verbal section of that test.

Your goal for the year depends on the level of class you’re in:
Regular English
Honors English
per qtr
by end of 4th qtr.
per qtr.
by end of 4th qtr
Pay close attention to the PLEASE REMEMBER section
in the packet posted to your Google classroom for Vocabulary.com
Every class period
(except today's) you will receive a "Word of the Day" that you should write down on the Semester pages provided in your packet. You can print this page out or type down the word in your Chromebook when those are issued.
This is added vocabulary practice that's less demanding than Vocabulary.com.
After journal entries, I will give you the word and spell it for those who need it, then give you the word in a sentence.
I will not simply give you the definition.
It will be up to you to use the context clues of the sentence I supply you to come up with a definition for the word.
There will be numerous Words of the Day quizzes throughout the school year.
Usually every two weeks.
Be prepared.
21 WCC Regular Season Championships

After session 2
The Hopeless and the Damned
has went back under the knife this
past summer and will eventually be completed under a new title, which is yet to be determined. So far I have added nearly 13,000 words of additional backstory following the life of the protagonist Jackson Cain. I intend to add about 7,000 more words to ring the total book word count to well over 55,000. When this is complete I will not be going the "self-publishing" route I went with the above books, instead I'll be sending my finished manuscript out to agents and publishers looking for representation.
A little something to think about...
