Literature 6

Course Expectations

Students should expect to have daily reading, at least one (or more) weekly written assignments, required participation, and exams as assigned by their instructor. All requirements are assigned and graded by the instructor.  Vocabulary will be incorporated into the course and will be relevant to the literary works read in class. This course will be a bridge from Elementary school to Jr. High as far as literature goes.  Testing will focus primarily on units rather than cumulative quarters/semesters.
