But first a random grammar lesson b/c that's who I am as a person!
Did you know you can use either syllabi or syllabuses as the plural form of the word syllabus. The word is originally Latin, so the first form is how you would make the word plural in Latin. The second form follows the rules of English a.k.a English grammar. It's the same rationale for why I can say octopuses and not be wrong. Now you try it! LOL!
Now the Syllabus Business...try saying that three times fast!
Below you will find two versions of the syllabus and the parent information sheet. This first one is the long version that we will review in class and that you also need to review with your parents/guardians at home. After viewing this version of the syllabus, I ask that you please return a signed copy of the parent information sheet. The other syllabus is the short/abbreviated version I will pass out to you in class. Please keep a copy of this in your binder because it details the nuts and bolts of hos the class will work. It also contains all of my contact information. Thanks for your cooperation love bugs! You're awesome!
Long Syllabus with Parent Information Sheet
Abbreviated Syllabus in case you lose the one I will give you in class
So...according to your summer reading assignment, all British Literature students were to go to www.study.com and complete several short lessons on the how to write a research paper . I do not know why those lessons did not load the way I intended, but said lessons are up now. I have also extended the completion deadline to Sunday, August 5, 2018, 12:00 midnight. The lessons are CRAZY short, but will serve as a good review for a skill we will be using throughout the year. For those grade-oriented individuals...yes, each lesson counts as a grade, and please do remember that you can only take each quiz once. Lastly, you will have an in-class test over the material covered.
I really do apologize that the lessons did not load the way I intended. If extending the deadline does not abate your anger, then please watch the following informational video detailing my mistake and how I am clearly "not that innocent" regarding this whole debacle.
Ms. Davis is my name and teaching English (along with several other superhuman powers) is my game. I love language and the power of words, and I hope some of my enthusiasm rubs off on you as well.
