    Welcome to Young Adult Literature 2021-2!

    Educational Resources:

    This year we will be using an online book source to select Young Adult novels for each of our close study Units. 
    - All of our Units have required baseline readings that will require students to utilize www.commonlit.org online. 
    - All of our units include a novel "Book Tasting". This is where students survey up to 5 different novels and select the one they find the most interesting.
    - There will be 10-20 activities, 2 tests, and 4 quizzes for each Unit of Study. The actual grade for these assignments will be available through Infinite Campus.
    - Students will be assigned independent novels to read, with coordinating assignments and assessments.
      - These will be found in my Google Classroom. This is the main website that will be used to collect student's written work, projects, and the occasional quiz or test. 

    Below are direct links that will take all registered users directly to the Google Classrooms:


    Expectations of Student Work

     Students are expected to complete all assignments on time. Late work will not be accepted unless prefaced or followed by a phone call with the student's parent/guardian. These calls are logged as a means to document interventions for students who may struggle. 
    All students are expected to follow and respect the school's Code of Conduct. The consequences of neglecting those rules and norms could be, but not limited to:
    - Verbal warning
    - Calls home to parent/guardians
    - Parent-Teacher Meeting/Conference
    - After school or Before school detention ( with a teacher)
    - Lunch detention ( with a teacher)
    - Behavior or Academic intervention plans
    - Write-ups to Administration ( Principal intervention)
