HUMANITIES will focus on literature that explores where mankind has failed in being humane. In doing so, we will examine human problems and organizations and how they help or hinder the individuals involved. SPEECH will focus on effective written and oral communication, including explanatory, creative, and persuasive writing and speaking. It may also include communication analysis of professionally and classroom produced products. Additionally, we will complete a unit on mystery reading at this time.
DRAMA PRACTICUM is a course that focuses on play production. Class members will be responsible for set construction (and other technical aspects), as well as performing the school's competitive one act play (fall) and public performance production (spring). This will require some out of class time, as students MUST be able to attend the District, Sectional (if qualified for), and State (if qualified for) levels of competition in the Wisconsin High School Forensic Association (WHSFA) sponsored contests. Students also present a public performance(s). *Because students must be academically eligible to compete, missing work in other classes will be closely monitored, and may affect a student's participation in course work.*
Students in my class receive a complete list of rules in the classroom, but two key ideas are worth sharing:
Technology – As a rule, tablets, cell phones, and similar electronic devices are not needed in my class (I’m interested in student ideas, after all). I encourage students to leave their phones in their lockers. If a phone goes off while on the student, they will be issued a detention. If we are working on a research project where access to an electronic device is useful, students may use their items. Chrome books will only be used when directed.
Student Responsibility. If students miss the instructions because they come to class tardy or have missed a day of school, the STUDENT is responsible for getting them from me or another student. I simply do not have the time, energy, or memory to know who has missed what. I will help by keeping on-going assignments and due dates on the side bulletin board, but the student is the one who needs to check this.
