    Reading Plus Information: 

    Great News: 9th grade Intensive Reading students now have access to Reading Plus! Students are to complete 9 assignments a week for my class. They are to complete 5 Readers (Comprehension Articles) and 4 Vocabulary assignments. The deadline for the completion of these assignments is each Sunday by midnight. Students will be given time in class as well as time during Power Hour to complete these assignments. If your student is absent from school they can work on these assignments from home to help maintain their reading rate and grade! The more lessons completed, the closer they will get to their grade level goals!
