Ms. Haselmann 2014/2015
Welcome to Ms. Haselmann's English classes. I look forward to having a great year in all my classes and hopefully we will create an enjoyable learning environment where all students will excel. Listed below are tentative novels which you will need to have in class. I will give you a schedule of when these books will be read. If you prefer to access books online, that is fine as long as you do the assigned reading. We will be reading our textbooks on line, students who do not have internet access will be issued a textbook.
For the Summer Reading program students were to read the rguired book as well as one book from the class list. This year we will write an essay on the theme the first full day of class. (Wednesday/Thursday) You may bring the book as well as any notes you have to use in writing the essay. In AP Language Composition you will write a theme essay on one of the books. Please make sure you read carefully so you will be prepared. please bring the book and any notes to use for writing your essay.
Please remember that Beach High is a uniform school and all students are expected to come to school in their uniforms and wearing their ID's. If you come to my class without your uniform or ID, you will be required to get a uniform violation. Also, outer wear must be red, white, or grey otherwise a uniform violation will be issued.
I expect all students to arrive on time an be prepared to start the class work as soon as the bell rings.
All students will show show respect for all memebers of the class.
All students are expected to be active perticipants in classroom activities and turn all assignments in ON TIME. I do not accept late work.
