PreIB10 World Literature and Composition 2010-2011 Syllabus and Class Expectations Instructor: Christa Adkisson Contact e-mail: christa.adkisson@bvsd.org (please allow 24 hours for response) Contact phone: 720-561-3113 Office Hours by Appointment : Periods 2, 5, 6, block lunch, before school, after school Welcome to PreIB LA 10, Advanced World Literature and Composition. This year we will work to prepare you for junior/senior IB English or AP English classes. The ultimate goal for this class is for students to develop the ability to read universally recognized literature in an analytical and critical manner and to be able to respond articulately to this literature. We will also work to develop your discussion and creative writing skills in attempt to improve your overall writing, enjoyment, and understanding of various types of literature. Course Texts: First semester: Textbook: World Masterpieces (Prentice Hall) Macbeth by William Shakespeare (Cambridge University Press) A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens Second semester: Various Non-Fiction Texts (provided in class) One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Life of Pi by Yann Martel The Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka Textbook: World Masterpieces (Prentice Hall) Various poetry from around the world Supplies: 1. A binder that can be used strictly for English class. It is critical that you keep this binder organized and up to date throughout the semester. You will receive further details on the labeling and organization of this binder later in this packet. 2. A notebook that can be used strictly for English class. This notebook will be used for note- taking, but will also serve as a writer’s notebook for journaling assignments, free-writes, etc. Many students prefer a spiral notebook with holes so they can clip it into their binder. This helps you keep track of the notebook, and makes submission of both easier. If you use a notebook that is not hole punched, please be sure our binder has a pocket you can use to keep your notebook in place. 3. Please bring paper, a writing utensil, and the current work of literature to class EVERY day! *If you can not get these supplies, please see me as soon as possible!! Standards for all Written Work: All written assignments must be typed, double spaced, and follow the MLA formatting guidelines unless otherwise specified. If you do not have access to a computer outside of school, please see me to make arrangements. 1. Revise and edit your papers before you hand them in 2. Submit all drafts leading up to the final draft (including already graded drafts in the case of re-writes) 3. All Major assignments (including rewrites) must be submitted on turnitin.com. Please attach the receipt from turnitin.com to your paper prior to turning it in to me. Any paper submitted without a turnitin.com report will be entered as “missing” in the grade book until a receipt is submitted. The turnitin.com report must include the body of the submitted paper on the receipt.
