Mr. Boyatt - Pre-AP English 9


Upcoming Assignments

Ongoing Assignments - Make sure you have the Literary Devices list memorized (first semester) and the Rhetorical Devices list memorized (semester 2).  Both will be on the final exam.  Links are on the left hand side of this page under "Terms to Memorize"


There is a NoRedInk.com lesson assigned every Monday.  Students have until Sunday night to finish it.  (Most lessons are set up to take about thirty minutes.)


To Kill a Mockingbird --   The reading schedule for the novel is listed in the links to the left.  This is an important novel.  I want EVERY student to read this novel cover to cover.  Our reading pace is very slow.  You can probably knock out all of your reading during SSR.  At the completion of the novel, you will sign an Honor Statement admitting if you read the book or not.  Yes, credit will be given for that statement.  


We will be participating in Literature Circles throughout the next month.  (I explained the literature circle packet on Wednesday, March 22.)  You will meet with your group at the end of every six chapters.  You will have a specific role assigned to you for that meeting.  If you do not have your materials completed when you walk in the room, you will not receive any credit for that section.  Please be prepared.

How will we use the site in English 9?

I will give you a diagnostic test.  (No Grade assigned) The results will show me what areas we need the most work in.

Based on those results, I will assign practice for you to master those standards.  (Grade assigned)

When the practice is completed, I will assign a "Quiz" to ensure mastery. (Grade assigned)

Then we will start the process again with another diagnostic test to find problems areas.


Troubleshoot:  Make sure you are using your SCHOOL Google account, not your personal one.   ID Number@my.tvusd.k12.ca.us
