English 11 SYLLABUS


Objective: The eleventh grade English course is designed to help students begin to apply the English skills that they have obtained. It is a course to help students increase their reading levels, technology skills, writing skills, spelling skills and reading skills.

Major Units: Research, Debate, Resumes, Interview Skills, Technology Skills, Podcasting, Blogging, and ethics.

Plagiarism: is the unacknowledged use of another writer’s words, thoughts, or ideas. Plagiarism has become a much bigger problem with the easy availability of internet resources and papers. Any student caught plagiarizing will be given a zero on the assignment. Plagiarism is absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Texts: This class room is a paperless class. Any books that we will use will stay in the classroom.

ProgressBook: You are responsible for checking ProgressBook on a weekly basis. It is important that you know your grade at all times. There are no surprises when it comes to your grade. If you have a question about your grade, ask me!
