Welcome to Mr. NP's English 9 class.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How will I be graded in this class?

Regular, daily classwork is worth 30% of your overall grade. This includes reading checks, short writing assignments (1-2 paragraphs), and graphic organizers. We do work every day, but not everything is graded. Tests, quizzes, and projects are worth 60% of your overall grade. There will be about five or six test grades in the grade book during a marking period. Homework is worth 10% of your overall grade and is often directly linked to the classwork we complete. Independent practice is critical for high achievement. All assignments are graded on a points basis. 

What character traits will distinguish me from my peers?

I believe that persistence, effort, and critical thinking are the most important "student" skills one can acquire. I believe that forming interests, opinions, and hobbies make for the most interesting people to speak with on a daily basis. I'm looking forward to knowing what's important to you.

Who is Mr. NP?

Mr. NP is an English teacher by day, worldwide wanderer by summer vacation; Historical tour guide on the side. Lifelong Pokemon player (because video games are stories, too!), brand new father, and a loyal husband -- please note, that list is not in the correct order of importance. He loves reading and writing because it opens the world of exploration.
Mr. NP will begin in PWay as soon as he is able! In the meantime, he has provided stories to read which have captured his imagination.
