Escalate English is a 50 minute class that will cover many concepts in order to strengthen our ability to not only read fluently but comprehend what we just read. The majority of our work will be done through an online program in class.
Homework will be assigned out of a consumable notebook. Students will tear out the pages they are required to do at home on Monday and and will be expected to turn in their homework on the following block day. Homework for this class will be posted here on my website.
Students will also have a monthly homework assignment through the website NoRedInk. The students and I will set this up in class, then they will be expected to complete the month's work (25-30 minutes of work) at home. I will check to see if the assignment is completed at the end of the month and they will receive a grade.
*If there is a technology issue I need to be aware of, please let me know, and I will handle this on a case by case basis.
The student textbook will be available to the students at home via their student portal. Therefore if you have questions, or the student cannot remember a certain component of their homework they can always access it online.
