English I Syllabus
Teacher: Mrs. Shelley Gordon
The English I course provides a foundational study of literary genres (novels, short stories, poetry, drama, literary nonfiction), which may include influential U.S. documents and one Shakespearean play. Interdisciplinary informational writing as well as documented research and speaking
and listening skills will be included along with multimodal presentations.
Required Materials: pen/pencil, paper, Chromebook
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:
- Be on time
- Be prepared for class
- Be respectful of all people and property
Failure to follow these rules will result in these consequences:
- verbal remediation
- change of seat
- parent contact
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.
