Welcome to English 9!
You can find the course policies and procedures handout HERE.Required Materials:
- a 3-ring binder filled with lined paper OR a separate notebook and a folder with ample pockets for handouts*
- a pen or pencil
- the work we are considering, which will always be supplied to you at the beginning of a unit
- your charged device
*Although we now have 1:1 devices, we still recommend that you write your notes on paper. Studies have shown that the mechanical act of writing helps us to remember new information. Downloading and/or taking pictures of information does nothing to aid in retention, and even typing notes out or using a stylus on your device are less effective than old fashioned pen on paper.
