The English program strives to advance the communicative skills of the students in writing, speaking, reading and listening comprehension, as well as advance their understanding of other cultures. The goal is to bring the learners to a higher functioning level in the English language by helping them to become actively engaged learners. We believe that mastering the English language will enable the learners to take an active role in our ever-changing multicultural world.
The English class at Rothberg Highschool is one in which students explore their inner selves through the study of English literature, language and culture. Each class incorporates the four language skills, and each student is expected to actively partake in the learning process. We believe that active learning is the best way to acquire a language.
The English literature program counts directly towards your final literature Bagrut module (module B/D/F). Therefore, you must keep all your assignments in a folder and keep it until the end of the 11th grade. Please note, it is your responsibility to collect all the literature assignments in a folder and hold on to it.
Basic Rules of Conduct
– Please arrive to class on time (two minutes earlier is even better!)
– Please bring the required class material (books, notebooks/computers and writing utensils)
– You may not use your phone during class, unless guided otherwise by the teacher.
Absences and early dismissals
If you are absent from school, you are responsible for making up the missed work. Upon returning to school following an absence, speak with your English teacher regarding missed assignments. If you know ahead of time that you will not be able to take a certain quiz or test, you must notify your teacher ahead of time. If you need to leave class early, please provide your English teacher with a written permission note.
Grade Distribution Explained:
The school semester/yearly grade includes all work, assignments, quizzes, tests and attendance that were done in that period, according to the weights that were discussed at the beginningof the year:
Quizzes on learned material 85
Unseens/Listening Comp 50
Classwork/Homework 10- 20
The Bagrut Final Grade is specific to the particular Module, that is, the B/D/F only include Literature. A/E include listening and unseen. C/G include unseen and writing. Only assignments/tests etc relevant to each module are included.
It is therefore possible for a student to have a gap between their semester/yearly grade and their bagrut.
For example a student who did all their Literature assignments etc might have a 95 on F, but because they didnt do well on Unseens, might have a semester grade of 70, and a G grade of 60.
