Ms. Evans’ 6th, 7th, & 8th grades
Instructor: Ms. Evans
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.).
¨ Respect yourself, staff, classmates, and school property.
¨ Try your best. If you don’t succeed, try, try and try again. I respect your efforts.
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:
The only homework that I ask of the kids is to read for at least 20 minutes each night and to write me a summary of what has been read. Other than that there is no homework. 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
