Kim B. Carroll firstname.lastname@example.org
4th Block F119
Fall Semester 2012
Dual Enrollment/English 101 has the basic goal of preparing students to write, not only for an English teacher, but for a variety of academic readers. Using the required textbooks, students will learn about and discuss this goal in more detail. In addition, completing English 101 will increase their understanding of the writing process and familiarize them with rhetoric and with audience analysis. This course is also designed to develop students’ reading, speaking, listening, and critical-thinking skills. Using significant works of literature, students learn analysis. Note: Because this course is a Dual Enrollment class, students will also be required to cover the required objectives listed for English 12.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:
English 101 prepares students to write and seeks (1) to help them with specific types of writing, (2) to increase their understanding of the writing process, (3) to familiarize them with the notions of rhetoric and audience analysis, (4) and to become knowledgeable about British literature. Students will read and write, discuss and write, write and rewrite. They will think critically, write persuasively, and speak effectively; explore classics of British literature and thought; and grapple with provocative questions as they explore literature through experience, interpretation, and evaluation.
After completion of this course, as well as improving their writing skills, students will be able to
(1) actively read and comprehend a complex text;
(2) articulate ideas in classroom discussion;
(3) write organized and coherent thesis-based essays that demonstrates skill in analysis and synthesis and uses correct grammar and an effective style;
(4) write creatively in order to apply literary elements in prose and poetry writings;

Activity will count as a test grade.
ASSIGNMENTS and EXPECTATIONS:
Be on time and prepared for class. Notify me of absences prior to missing class. Attendance is expected, and the tardy policy will be enforced.
This syllabus is simply a guide for the course; therefore, the instructor reserves the right to make changes to the syllabus. Students will be given adequate notification. Students will be held responsible for the assignments designated. You will not be allowed to make up daily reading and writing assignments when returning with an unexcused absence.
This class will work with you as its core. You will be faced with seemingly difficult assignments, but you will think, talk, and write your way through any obstacles faced in this class. We will workshop most of your writings with peer editing and conference sessions. The kinds of writing will vary with an emphasis on understanding, explaining, and evaluating the text.
You will be expected to have read the pages for each class before we meet. This course is compact and will require that you take class time seriously. The class will consist of reading quizzes, oral presentations, short writing assignments, more involved writing assignments (some will be timed) encompassing out-of-class and in-class essays, and two exams. Vocabulary quizzes will assess literary terms discussed in class, words highlighted in relation to historical/cultural periods, and traditional lists to be studied as the year progresses. Grammar will be reviewed as problems arise.
Some of the required essays will focus on reading assignments and class discussion. All final essays will be typed in MLA format, in Times New Roman font (12 pt) and double–spaced. Late essays will drop ten points for each day after the due date. You may rewrite any essay submitted on time. The rewrites should be submitted no later than one week from the day you received your grade. Informal and formal writing both serve as vehicles to assist you in applying specific literary skills. All modes of writing are necessary in this class.
Twenty-Minute Switch: Timed writing in which the student will respond to a question spurred from previous readings or class discussion. The students are to skip lines and quickly formulate a stance or position to defend. In twenty minutes the students will switch papers, read their partner’s assertions, and respond in agreement or disagreement while presenting new and more in-depth assertions in order to support the claim. This practice targets writing as a method to understand, explain, and evaluate.
Students should be reading every night.
We will begin with discussions centering on summer reading selections (Frankenstein).
Students will be required to complete a MWDS for all novels read in class
short writing assignments
DE-101 Students will be required to take an End-of-the-Quarter Exam: EQT.
All assessments will be assigned a point value in accordance with Mobile Public School System guidelines. Grades will be assessed in several areas. With lessons that vary in difficulty and skill, you will have every opportunity to do well in this class.
Homework is checked the day it is due. A zero in the grade book indicates that the homework was not completed in a satisfactory manner or not attempted. Do every homework assignment, and you will be prepared to take part in class. When you return from an excused absence, minor homework assignments (vocabulary, grammar, journal assignments, etc.) are due the day of your return. It is your responsibility to get your homework assignments. Homework written in pencil or written on torn paper or in a condition misrepresenting the work will receive a zero. Homework is due when the teacher makes the request. Homework assignments left in lockers, other classrooms, cars, etc. will receive a zero.
Make-up work as a rule will not be administered during class time. Make-up work will be given before school, during my planning time, or after school on scheduled days. It is your responsibility to make arrangements. You have five school days to complete the assignment. Failure to make an appointment or failure to show for a scheduled appointment will result in a zero for the missed assignment. There is no possibility for make-up work for an unexcused absence. If you are on campus for any length of time or for any reason on the date an assignment is due, it should be turned in to me before you leave the campus.
All school procedures and policies will be followed. Please manage your own behavior. If you fail to respect the teacher, yourself, or another student, the teacher will proceed with the following steps: 1. verbal warning 2. parent/guardian contact 3. discipline referral. Be on time and prepared for class. The tardy and uniform policies are enforced; the fifth tardy will result in a discipline referral.
There is a procedure for all things in the classroom. You will be made aware as the year progresses. I expect that you will . . .
Have respect for yourself and others
Adhere to the seating chart
Not cheat or plagiarize
Bring appropriate books and materials to class everyday and on time
Alert me if you are experiencing difficulty in class

4. Review special vocabulary words.
5. Answer study questions in the text.
6. Quiz with a partner.

16. First, answer the questions you know.
17. If you don’t know the answer, still try.
18. Go back over the test.

THE WRITING PROCESS
1. Your goal is to find a meaningful idea about which to write.
2. Begin your search with free writing, clustering, webbing, etc.
3. Learn as much as you can about a subject.
4. If your prewriting leads to a dead end, drop it and search for a new subject.
5. Once you have a topic, find an interesting way to write about it.
6. Write ONLY the first paragraph to set the tone and direction of your writing.
7. Think about an overall plan or design for organizing your writing.
B. WRITING THE FIRST DRAFT
1. Write the first draft while your thinking and writing are still fresh on your mind.
SKIP EVERY OTHER LINE; IT WILL MAKE REVISING MUCH EASIER.
2. Refer back to your prewriting plan, but don’t be afraid to add a new idea.
3. Concentrate on ideas, NOT mechanics.
4. Write naturally as if you are talking to your readers.
5. Looking back sometimes helps you move forward in your writing.
6. Keep writing until you come to a natural stopping point. Your first draft is your first look at a developing writing idea.
1. First, become serious about your writing idea. If you do not feel strongly about your writing, you will lack the necessary care and concern to revise effectively.
2. Try to make what you are saying better – add, leave out, reword, or rearrange. (The dictionary and thesaurus are very useful tools.)
3. Make your writing as meaningful and lively as possible.
4. Review and revise the opening and closing paragraphs.
5. Review your words, sentences, and paragraphs to make sure they read the way you want them to read – SHARE WITH A FRIEND.
1. Reread your entire writing. Make sure you have not left out any important words or phrases.
2. Have a dictionary, thesaurus, and English textbook close at hand.
3. Check AND correct errors in run-on sentences, fragments, subject-verb agreement, punctuation, capitalization, and spelling.
4. After working the very best you can independently, ask a friend, classmate, or parent who has a good grasp of the language to proofread with you.
E FINAL COPY
1. Write or type a neat final copy of your writing. (Note: If you write, use lined paper and a blue or black ink pen.)
2. Your writing must be legible, or it will not be read or graded.
3. Proofread the final draft at least once before handing it in for final inspection.
SIX TRAITS WRITING ASSESSMENT
5 Paper – Mostly Correct
There are very few errors in my paper; it wouldn’t take long to get this ready to publish.
I have used capitals correctly.
Periods, commas, exclamation marks, and quotation marks are in the right places.
My spelling is accurate.
Every paragraph is indented to show where a new idea begins.
My grammar/usage is consistent and shows control.
3 Paper – About Halfway Home
A number of bothersome mistakes in my paper need to be cleaned up before I am ready to publish.
Spelling is correct on simple words. It may not always be right on the harder words.
Most sentences and proper nouns begin with capitals, but a few have been overlooked.
Paragraphs are present, but not all begin in the right spots.
A few problems with grammar and punctuation might make a reader stumble or pause now and again.
My paper reads like a first draft; I was more concerned with getting my ideas down than making sure to edit my paper.
1 Paper – Editing Not Under Control Yet
It would take a first reading to decode and then a second reading to get the meaning of my paper.
Speling errers our commun, evin on simpl werdz.
My paper, have errors in punctuation? and grammar that send the reader back two the beginning from a sentence to sort thing out
I’ve got capital letters scattered in All Over tHe place or NOT at all.
I haven’t got the hang of paragraphs yet.
The truth is, I haven’t spent much time editing this paper.
5 Paper – Really Individual and Powerful
I have put my personal stamp on this paper; it’s really me!
Readers can tell I am talking right to them.
I write with confidence and sincerity.
My paper is full of feelings, and my reader will feel what I feel.
I’m not afraid to say what I really think.
You can tell I wrote this. No one else sounds like this!
3 Paper – Individuality Fades In and Out
What I truly think and feel shows up sometimes.
My writing is pleasant, but a little cautious.
I’ve done too much telling and not enough showing.
My personality pokes through here and there but then gets covered up again.
Although readers will understand what I mean, it won’t make them feel like laughing, crying or pounding on the table.
My writing is right on the edge of being funny excited, scary or downright honest, but it’s not there yet.
1 Paper – Not Me Yet
I’m not comfortable sharing what I truly think and feel yet.
If you didn’t already know, it might be hard to tell who wrote this paper; you can’t really hear my voice in there yet.
I’m not comfortable taking a risk by telling you what I really think; I’ve taken the safest route by hiding my true feelings.
My paper is all telling and no showing at all.
I’ve held myself back by using general statements like “It was fun, “ “She was nice,” “I like him a lot.”
5 Paper – Extremely Clear, Visual, and Accurate
My paper contains just the right words in just the right places
All the words in my paper fit. Each one seems just right.
My words are colorful, snappy, vital, brisk and fresh. You won’t find overdone, vague, or flowery language.
Look at all my energetic verbs!
Some of the words and phrases are so vivid that the reader won’t be able to forget them.
3 Paper – Correct But Not Striking
The words in my paper get the message across, but they don’t capture anyone’s imagination or attention.
I used everyday words pretty well, but I didn’t stretch for a new or better way to say things.
Most of the time the reader will figure out what I mean even if a few words are goofed up.
Occasionally, I may have gone a bit overboard with words that tried to impress the reader.
My words aren’t specific enough. Instead of saying, “The sun went down” I should have said, “The sun sagged into the treetops.” Better, juicier details are needed!
There are as many tired out clichés (“Bright and early,” Quick as a wink”) as there are new, fresh, and original phrases: “My mother made me feel more special than all her potted plants.”
1 Paper – Confusing, Misused Words, and Phrases Abound
My reader is often asking, “What did you mean by this?”
A lot of my words and phrases are vague: “We liked to do things,” “We were friends and stuff.”
My words don’t make pictures yet. “Something neat happened.” “It was awesome.”
Some of my words are misapplications. Oops, I mean misused.
Over and over I used the same words, over and over, and then over and over again until my paper was over.
5 Paper – Clear and Compelling Direction
I’ve chosen an order that works well and makes the reader want to find out what’s coming next.
My beginning gets the reader’s attention and gives clues about what is coming.
Every detail adds a little more to the main idea or story.
All my details are in the right place; everything fits like a puzzle.
I ended at a good spot and didn’t drag on too long. I left my reader with something to think about
3 Paper – Some Really Smooth Parts, Others Need Work
The order of my story/paper makes sense most of the time.
I have a beginning, but it really doesn’t grab you or give clues about what is coming.
Sometimes it is not clear with how the details I have used connect to the main idea or story.
Some of my details are in the right spot, but some should come earlier or later.
I’ve lingered too long in some places and sped through others.
I have a conclusion; it just isn’t the way I want it yet. I may have gone on too long or just tried to sum up in an “ho hum way.”
1 Paper – Not Shaped Yet
The order in my paper is jumbled and confused. I’m feeling dizzy!
There isn’t really a beginning or ending to my paper. It just “takes off.”
I’m confused about how the details fit with the main idea or story.
My ideas seem scrambled, jumbled, and disconnected.
Conclusion? Oops, I forgot.
5 Paper – Varied and Natural
The sentences in my paper are clear and delightful to read aloud.
Some sentences are long and stretchy while some are short and snappy.
It’s easy to read my paper aloud; I love the sound.
Sentence beginnings vary; they also show how ideas connect.
You can tell that I have good “sentence sense” because my paper just flows.
All excess baggage has been cut. I’ve economized with words.
3 Paper – Routine and Functional
Some sentences are choppy or awkward, but most are clear.
Some of my sentences are smooth and natural, but others are halting.
Sentence beginnings are more alike than different.
I need to add transitional words (Therefore…Later…For this reason…When this happened..) to show how sentences connect.
Some sentences should merge; others need to be cut in two.
I have used more words than necessary; I still need to trim some deadwood.
1 Paper – Needs Work
Because there isn’t enough “sentence sense” yet, this paper is difficult to read aloud, even with practice.
As I read my paper, I have to go back, stop, and read over just to figure out the sentences.
I’m having a hard time telling where one sentence stops and another begins.
The sentence patterns in my paper are so repetitive they might put my reader to sleep!
I have to do quite a bit of oral editing (leaving some words out, putting some others in) just to help the listener get the meaning.
IDEAS AND CONTENT
5 Paper – Focused, Clear, and Specific
My writing is full of the kinds of details that keep the reader’s attention and know what is really important about my topic.
I know a great deal about this topic, and when others read my paper, they’ll find out some new or little-known information.
I made sure to show what was happening (“The wildly spiraling tornado aimed straight for our barn”) rather than telling what happened (“It was scary”).
I filled my paper with interesting tidbits that make reading it fun and lively.
I made sure my topic was small enough to handle. “All About Baseball: was too big – I changed it to “How to Steal a Base.”
3 Paper – Some Really Good Parts, Some Not There Yet
The reader usually knows what I mean. Some parts will be better when I tell just a little more about what is important.
Some of the things I said are new, but other things everyone knows already.
Some details I have used are pretty general, such as “Her hat was nice,” or “It was a sunny day.”
I think my topic might be too big and I got bogged down trying to tell a little about a lot instead of a lot about a little.
Sometimes I was very clear about what I meant, but at other times, it was still fuzzy.
1 Paper – Just Beginning to Figure Out What I want to Say
When someone else reads my paper, it will be hard for them to understand what I mean or what it is all about.
I haven’t shared much information. I guess I don’t know enough yet about this topic to write about it.
My details are so vague, so it is difficult to picture anything.
I’m still thinking aloud on paper. I’m looking for a good idea.
Maybe I’ll write about this, but then, maybe I’ll write about that.

Formatting an Essay in MLA Style
Before you write the first, and then later the final, draft of an essay, you want to make sure that you understand how to arrange it in MLA format. Directions for how to do so follow.
Margins: Leave a one-inch margin at the top, bottom, and sides of every page. However, your name and page number on each page should be only one-half inch from the top, yet still one inch from the right-hand side. On your computer go to “page setup” and set the margins at 0.5 at the top and 1.0 at the bottom and at both sides. Then, click on Insert at the top of your screen. Click on page numbers. A box will appear. Under Position, pull down top of page (Header). Under Alignment, pull down Right. Click so that the page number will show on the first page. Click on OK. The number 1 should automatically appear 1” from the right-hand margin and ½” from the top of your page. Then click on View at the top of your screen and then on Header and Footer. A box with several pictures will appear. Ignore it. Click on the number 1 (a fuzzy box will appear—ignore it) and correctly type your last name and then add one space before the number 1 with your space bar. Using the box you previously ignored, click on Close. Then, hit your enter bar once. This procedure should set up your page numbers correctly on all pages. (If handwriting your essay, use the red margins on your loose-leaf paper to guide you. Maintain your margins correctly and remember to double-space everything. If you need assistance, ask your teacher for help.)
Spacing: Double-space every line of your text. Do not leave extra space after your title or between paragraphs. Do not leave extra spaces between sentences or citations. (If typing your essay, after you set up your margins and header on the computer but before your begin to type the first page, hit Ctrl and the number 2, and your computer will automatically double-space for you.)
Identifying Before you begin typing the text of your paper, you must add the identifying information.
Information: In the upper left corner of the first page, put your name, your teacher’s name, the class name, and the date (in inverted order). Remember to double-space and to maintain your margins.
Title: Center the title of the paper on the double-spaced line below your identifying information. Do not place it in quotation marks, underline it, or write it in all capital letters.
Paragraphs: Indent the first line of each paragraph five spaces, or one-half inch.
Please feel free to contact me by e-mail at email@example.com. I will make every effort to check my e-mail and to respond accordingly. I look forward to working with you. I expect that our relationship will be a reciprocal one.

LITERATURE CIRCLE INFORMATION FOR ENGLISH 101
Using a special format supplied by the teacher, each student will be responsible for completing a literature circle project on one novel selected from the list below. (No student may select a book that he or she has already read as part of his or her summer reading assignment or that has been assigned as a class requirement.) As soon as a student has chosen and obtained a novel to read, he or she must show it to the teacher, who will then supply the literature circle documents. Each student should read and follow directions for the literature circle.
Book reports are worth 100 points. All reports should be recorded on loose-leaf or typing paper, and when turning in the assignment should be stapled to them.
