Home Access Center Replacing Parent Connection

Suffolk Public Schools will be implementing a new grade book, Teacher Access Center, for the 2014-2015 school year.

As a result, parents/guardians will no longer use  Parent Connection to monitor student academic progress. A new resource, Home Access Center (HAC), is the parent component of Teacher Access Center and will provide parental access to student academics.

Those parents/guardians wishing to transition from Parent Connection to the new progress monitoring system, Home Access Center, are required to provide a valid email address to establish an account. Parents with children in multiple schools are required to complete and return a separate form for each school attended.  Home Access Center accounts will be generated and access information will be shared with parents via email prior to the start of the 2014-2015 school year.

Call 923-5248 for more information

A.P. English Language and Composition: Curricular Requirements

AP English Language & Composition: Curricular Requirements
CR1: The course teaches and requires students to write in several forms (e.g., narrative, expository, analytical, and argumentative essays) about a variety of subjects (e.g., public policies, popular culture, personal experiences).
CR2: The course requires students to write essays that proceed through several stages or drafts, with revision aided by teacher and peers.
CR3: The course requires students to write in informal contexts (e.g., imitation exercises, journal keeping, collaborative writing, and in-class responses) designed to help them become increasingly aware of themselves as writers and of the techniques employed by the writers they read.
CR4: The course requires expository, analytical, and argumentative writing assignments that are based on readings representing a wide variety of prose styles and genres.
CR5: The course requires nonfiction readings (e.g., essays, journalism, political writing, science writing, nature writing, autobiographies/biographies, diaries, history, criticism) that are selected to give students opportunities to identify and explain an author’s use of rhetorical strategies and techniques. If fiction and poetry are also assigned, their main purpose should be to help students understand how various effects are achieved by writers’ linguistic and rhetorical choices. (Note: The College Board does not mandate any particular authors or reading list, but representative authors are cited in the AP English Course Description.)
CR6: The course teaches students to analyze how graphics and visual images both relate to written texts and serve as alternative forms of text themselves.
CR7: The course teaches research skills, and in particular, the ability to evaluate, use, and cite primary and secondary sources. The course assigns projects such as the researched argument paper, which goes beyond the parameters of a traditional research paper by asking students to present an argument of their own that includes the analysis and synthesis of ideas from an array of sources.
CR8: The course teaches students how to cite sources using a recognized editorial style (e.g., Modern Language Association, The Chicago Manual of Style, etc.).
CR9: The AP teacher provides instruction and feedback on students’ writing assignments, both before and after the students revise their work, that help the students develop these skills:
?A wide-ranging vocabulary used appropriately and effectively
?A variety of sentence structures, including appropriate use of subordination and coordination
?Logical organization, enhanced by specific techniques to increase coherence, such as repetition, transitions, and emphasis
?A balance of generalization and specific, illustrative detail
?An effective use of rhetoric, including controlling tone, establishing and maintaining voice, and achieving appropriate emphasis through diction and sentence structure
