    Course Descriptions:

    The purpose of my courses is to provide students with integrated educational experiences in the Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and the Social Studies content areas.  The content will include: 

    -using reading strategies to construct meaning from informative, technical, and literary texts

    -acquiring an extensive vocabulary through reading, discussion, listening, and systematic word study

    -using process writing strategies, student inquiry, and self-monitoring techniques

    -using speaking, listening, and viewing strategies in formal presentations and informal discussions

    -understanding and responding to a variety of literary forms

    -understanding and using language successfully to impact readers, writers, listeners, speakers, and viewers while learning content material.

    Classroom and Team Expectations

    ¨      Be on time to class.

    ¨      Be prepared for class (folder, paper, pencils, etc.).

    Grading Information:

    You are the individual responsible for the grade you receive. I do not “give” grades, you earn them.

    9-weeks grades will be based on the following:

    Classwork/Daily Assignments, Quizzes, CRLs, RWAs, DBQs                                      

    Tests, Projects, & Presentations  



    There will be no formal homework or homework grade this year.  However, there may be some work sent home with your child.  If a student does not complete his/her assignment of the day, they will be asked to take it home and complete it that evening and return it the next school day.  This will be a classroom assignment grade and will have a detrimental effect on their overall grade if left incomplete.


    Binder:   There will be a Binder grade each week.
