I am so looking forward to working with you this school year, my 18th here at Mendham High.
All handouts and materials are accessible on my Haiku pages, under the tab that corresponds to the unit being studied.There you can find specific information about the course, homework assignments and procedures, class rules, grading, rubrics, and linguistic proficiency. Additionally, there are support pages with homework help and resources, grammar resources, and explanations of the four skill areas: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Students have access to Haiku through their school Google accounts.
GRADING is on a total point system.
Quizzes = 50 points
Tests = 100 points
Homework = 10 points each unless otherwise specified
Classwork = 10 -20 points
Oral Proficiency = 5 points daily when applicable
Marking period grade = Earned Points divided by Possible Points.
I am available for extra help Tuesdays after school in room 167 and during periods 7 (lobby) and 2 and 4 (168). The best way to reach me is by email at the address listed above. I can also be reached by phone - (973) 543-2501 x5114. Please allow 24 hours for me to respond.
