Mrs. Peters - High School English
Back to school supplies for all levels: a folder, single subject notebook (Eng 9 & 10 only), writing utensils, lots of loose leaf paper.

In my English 9 class, you can expect weekly homework assignments and quizzes. There are three required assignments for this class. The first is a research project, the second and third are book reports. All of these requirements must be met in order to move on to tenth grade English next year. Failure to meet these requirements even if you are passing the class will result in the repetition of the entire ninth grade English year.
In my English 10 class, you can expect weekly homework assignments and quizzes. Similar to 9th grade there are three required assignments, a research project/paper and two book reports.
Honors English 12
Honors English 12 is a combination of Genesee Community College curriculum for ENG 101 and 105 and Advanced Placement curriculum. Students have to take the class for their senior English credit and can also take the class for GCC credit and/or AP credit. Obtaining GCC credit requires registration and payment through Genesee Community College. Achieving AP credit requires taking a rigorous exam in May, which would be the student's financial responsibility. The exam costs around $80.00.
These classes require 3 major research papers (each roughly 8 pages in length), regular short essay assignments, a lot of reading and class discussion, and some presentation.
