Supplies

English Binder (with dividers)—Your English Binder should have Three sections:

  • Notes
  • Handouts
  • Printed Reading Responses (RR)

Your binder is the equivalent of your growing textbook over the course of the year.  You should keep the binder organized! Each page of the Notes Section should be dated and titled clearly reflecting the day’s subject matter.  Class notes taken during my lectures, class discussions, and group presentations will help you in preparing for the Context Paper (PBA).  You should place handouts in your binder alongside the relevant day’s notes. Your typewritten reading responses should include your name, date, and title.  I should be able to quickly turn through your binder and get a clear sense of what you have been doing in English this year.  Your binder will be checked to ensure proper note taking as well as proper organization. This will be part of your classwork grade.

Ream of Copy Paper (500 count)—Budget cuts have made teaching even more difficult as basic supplies are in short supply or, as is the case with copy paper, nonexistent.  So your paper donation would be greatly appreciated!

Pens—Black or blue for regular note taking or journaling.  Red (or any other “lively” color) for editing.

1 Folder—This folder will be your writing project folder (holding all drafts including the final draft).  This year you will be receiving a grade for the writing process and the final draft.

Post-its— Always a helpful way to keep your thoughts together and to document any questions you may have for class.
