Books for the spring semester:

English IV Dual Credit students will need to rent  the 11th edition of Current Issues and Enduring Questions by Sylvan Barnet and Hugo Bedau for English 1302. The ISBN number is 9781319035471. It is available to rent through Amazon.com and the Spring Branch HCC campus bookstore, which is located behind the main building on I-10 and Beltway-8.

Mrs. Sharp’s English IV AP students will choose an AP work that they have not read yet (must exceed 150 pages except for Shakespearean plays) to compare to a novel or play read last semester for English. The spring AP novel will be announced in early March.

 English IV AP/GT and dual credit students are expected to complete selected assignments using Google Docs  and submit essays and study questions on Turnitin.com (through Itslearning) for an originality score of 10% or less. Students should resubmit documents on Turnitin.com before the due date if it receives a higher originality score than required.  



Make-Ups

Minimize

 

 

Any in-class assignments that are missed due to excused absences can be made up during my tutorial times or Thursday after school with the appointed English teacher (teachers are on a rotating schedule for department make-ups, so please check with me first).  Out-of-class assignments are due one class period (per the number of my classes missed) upon returning from an excused absence.

Assignments worth a daily grade that are late (not due to an excused absence) are not accepted and will result in a zero.  Assignments worth a major or quiz grade will be deducted 10 points per calendar day when late.

 

Tutorials

Minimize

Tutorials are Mondays and Thursdays after school until 4:00pm or by appointment. 

Class Assignments & Homework

Minimize

 All out-of-class assignments must be submitted on Turnitin.com (through Itslearning) with a less than 10% "originality" score. 

 

Upload your assignments in pdf or Word format on Turnitin.com!  If there is an originality issue, you may resubmit, but it may take 24 hours to process the resubmission so turn in the work ahead of time if possible.

  

 Due dates are listed on my three week calendars under Resources for both AP and Dual Credit. Changes will be listed below.

The Macbeth packet and APC's (the latter of which will be submitted on Turnitin.com also) are now due 11/9. The Macbeth test is still 11/3.

The 19th century novel timed writing on 11/9 will be a major test grade, not a quiz grade.

English IV AP book club assignments are due on Itslearning in the novel group's discussion thread. Go to the 19th century novel book club folder, double-click, and you'll see the different links. Click on the link for your book club and assignment. Click on "Start a new thread," and paste your four answers into the new thread you created.
