Need to complain about grades?

Syllabus Requirements
Date yet to be determined.

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.

Let's Keep It Simple
If you want to survive English 8 and 9:
I was a 3-sport athlete in High School
My sports: Soccer, Basketball, and Baseball
Four 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"
The "F-word"
English 8 & English 9
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 FRIDAY'S class
for 5
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 at the end of
. It will go in the gradebook as a Test grade.

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 nearly 100 journals to look at.
So don't anticipate comments regularly.
Every OTHER class period
(starting next class) you will receive a "Word of the Day" that you should write down on a separate sheet of paper and keep in a safe place, preferrably your folder/binder.
Class will start with this. 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 2-3 weeks.
Be prepared.

Unless there are opportunities to earn more.

and receive a party
at the end of the year! :)
Keep in mind
you can also lose points
as a class every day for behaviors and performance
below what is expected of you
Please try your best every day!
That's all for now. I hope to coach when a position becomes available.
I'm glad I moved because Hurricane Irma is about to destroy Florida.
