Welcome, and enter!
Step inside Room 65 to find out all that English 11, Writers' Workshop and Newspaper Club have to offer.
Handbooks are provided to all students attending Bridgeport High School. These handbooks contain information pertaining to not only daily procedures but also code of conduct with which students and their parents are expected to be familiar. In short, this code refers to 3 basic areas:
what students bring to school;
what students wear; and
how students act once they're here.
Here isn't limited to the high school during classes; it also means before and after school, during school functions [club meetings, dances and sporting events] and on district buses. Additional rules/guidelines for Room 65 are:
No hall passes without a verifiable doctor's note.
Bring all needed materials to class [including your handbook and ID].
Maintain the integrity of this room as a learning environment.
Respect is a two-way street, and it is earned.
Standards-Based Learning [SBL] does not mean redoing work until it is correct; it is all about proficiency. There will be limited opportunity for students to redo assignments.
Note to parents: Use of electronic devices (including cell phones) during class is prohibited. Please refrain from contacting your child during class times. The attention that is diverted from class to the phone or pager cannot be regained. Further, you put your child at risk of earning a referral for accessing the device during class, a violation of our cell phone usage policy [see p. 34 of the BHS 2011-12 Parent/Student Handbook]. If you must reach your child, please call the main office at (989) 777-3100.
Knowing where you're going in your classes is key to know how to get the most you can out of them. Take some time to review the learning goals and rubrics associated with English 11 and Writers' Workshop. Knowing what to expect can eliminate many of the uncertainties that often lead to negative first impressions about classes, teachers, classmates and school in general.
No lie: Sometimes, classes are tough, and they demand good time-management skills. Not planning for that science test at the end of the week 'cause you assume you'll be able to use this English class to study will result in full-on panic mode when you find out about that pop quiz I'm giving that day.
If you need help, ask. Talk to me about staying after school. The best ways to reach me are in the hallway between classes or by email: Rynearsong@bscs.k12.mi.us and/or at HiRy119@aol.com.
Additional information, including learning goals, rubrics and, eventually, assignment rosters, can be accessed through the links on the right. 2109 Hits
