(exceptions to this will be addressed on an individual basis). AR reading will account for ten percent of your grade. If you are testing at a level of 12.9 or higher you may choose other options in place of your standard AR reading goal as per the building policy. Class participation will also account for ten percent of your grade. (This includes behavior)

  • Violations of these rules will be dealt with on an individual basis.
  • Students will not be allowed to leave the English II classroom without their planner/hall pass. 
  • Choosing not to work is not an option in English II. If you choose not to work in this class an academic discipline notice will be sent to Mr. Richard's or Mr. Rapert's office and consequences will follow.

Attendance:

    The attendance policy of Liberty High School will be followed. If you must miss a class you are responsible for finding out what assignments are due and completing them in a timely manner. (Three days)

Research Papers:


Research papers will not be accepted without appropriate in-text citations and a works-cited page.

Plagiarism:

Any work intentionally turned in that is determined to be plagiarized will receive a 0, and appropriate discipline procedures concerning cheating will be enforced. Not citing a source when writing a research paper is considered plagiarism.



About your instructor:

    I am a 1980 graduate of Liberty High School,  a 2006 graduate of Southwest Baptist University, and I also received my Master's Degree from SBU in 2011. I grew up in Birch Tree, MO, and attended elementary school there. Many of you know my wife Rebecca. She teaches some of the advanced math classes at LHS. I also have three children. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, golf, movies, riding my motorcycle and any good book. I look forward to getting to know each of you and encourage you to approach me with any problems you may be having whether or not they involve my class.

Contact information:


 Please do not hesitate to call me at home if you need help with an assignment. I will also be available for tutoring immediately after school on Mondays and Wednesdays until 4:00 by appointment (except during basketball season). I will also make myself available at other times (mornings), by appointment, if needed.
