English Binder Requirements – Seniors
Mr. Martin – 2011/12
Due to the nature and volume of the work we’ll be doing this school year, it will be necessary for you to purchase and maintain a three-ring binder to organize your paperwork. The binder should be approximately 1 ½ inches thick, and can be divided into the sections listed below using tabs, dividers, or whatever method is most useful to you. The idea is that you’ll be able to access your paperwork quickly when preparing for in-class discussions, evaluations, and themes. I reserve the right to check your binders at any time so I can make sure you have everything you need, evaluate the binder for completeness, and monitor your progress.
First, you’ll have a section labeled General, which will include any general paperwork (including this sheet, classroom expectations, theme format sheet, proofreading symbols guide, Plagiarism Guide, etc.).
Next, you’ll need to have a section for each of the works we’ll be studying this year:
            Beowulf, translated by Seamus Heaney
            The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
            Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
            Animal Farm by George Orwell
            Hamlet by William Shakespeare
Macbeth by William Shakespeare
            Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Each of these sections will be used to file study guides, theme assignment sheets, notes taken on lectures and class discussions, and other related information for each work of literature.
Your binder should also contain the following sections:
            Term Paper Project
            Farewell Address
It is your responsibility to organize and maintain your binders and have them ready to be collected and evaluated at all times. Please be sure to ask questions if you’re unclear about the requirements for your English binder.
