Grades:

Most essays will count as major grades. The documented essay will count as two major grades. Major grades usually require a substantial time commitment (a week or more). In-class activities will usually count as minor grades and require a time commitment less than a week, with the exception of in-class timed writing assignments.


Grading Scale:

The evaluation of a student’s course progress and final grade is based upon the degree of mastery of course outcomes. The grade breakdown for this class follows the grading scale for Conroe High School. The grade breakdown for this class is as follows:


90-100
A
80-89
B
75-79
C
70-74
D

0-69
F

Any student who receives a D or an F in ANY Dual Credit course will be removed from the Conroe High School Dual Credit Program for the remainder of their public school education at Conroe High School.

Final Exam Information

The final exam will be administered on an earlier schedule than the Conroe High School final exam schedule.  The ENGL 1301 final exam will be announced at the beginning of the semester as CHS observes a double-block schedule in order to allow Dual Credit English students to write an in-class final exam essay during the two hour class period.

TEXTBOOKS:  Students must secure a copy of both of the following textbooks.  The 1301 textbook will be used in the fall 2016, and the 1302 textbook will be used in the spring 2017.  You may choose to RENT the textbooks as an economical option.

1) The ENGL 1301 textbook is Everything's an Argument with Readings by Andrea Lunsford, John J. Ruszkiewicz, and Kevin Walters (ISBN 9781457606045) - this is the older 6th edition.
