Century Book Club: All students are welcome at all times! We meet after school 2 Tuesdays each month, after school in 422. Come to the Century Book Club to talk about books, borrow a book, read a book, find a good book, or just hang out. Everyone is welcome! The schedule for the whole year is posted on my door.
ANY student may stop by and quietly borrow an exciting book club book, Academy or class library book at any time without attending our meetings. The checkout is on the honor system: No formally signed check-out sheet, simply return book(s) when finished. I trust you.
INFORMATION ABOUT MY CLASSes
Students read a book of at least 100-150 pages (or more) every 3-4 weeks, then in 2 minutes, explain/prove it to me. This is a large part of the class grade. A student may fail this class if at home reading is not done and reported on.
Independent Reading books will be due:
1. Book 1-100 pages or The Hate U Give 8/30
2. Book 2-150 pages 9/16
3. Book 3-150 pages 10/7
4. Book 4-150 pages 10/28
5. Book 5-150 pages 11/18
6. Book 6-150 pages 12/2
Students are given an update of their grades every 2 or 3 weeks. I do accept late work from AVID students and Teach English students(for a lower grade) until the end of each six week period as per the English department policy. I do not accept late work in English 101 per SAC grading policy, but I drop the lowest essay grade each semester, not counting the research paper. Parents and students can check assignments and grades at any time using your own password given through the Century Wellness Center.
