I always give you more than one night to finish any assignments. In addition to any written assignments, students should be making progress toward their nightly reading goals (20 minute minimum each night). They will have a place to record this progress. Late Work: You must submit homework assignments on-time in order to receive the full value possible, late assignments will be accepted on a case by case basis. I am always flexible, but I believe it is important to encourage and facilitate your own accountability.

They can ask me or their classmates for assistance. b) Missed work due to an absence: You will have additional time (up to 3 days) to complete make-up assignments for full credit. Course Overview: This course is a combination of language arts and literature. The literacy skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, comprehending, and thinking are taught. Students gain practice in grammar, punctuation, and writing skills. Assignments include all writing modes including: persuasive, narrative, expository, descriptive and imaginative. The writing process includes ideas and content, organization, sentence fluency and voice. In literature we read classic and contemporary literature, including short stories, dramas, and nonfiction. Personal connections, interpretations and responses to literature are made to show understanding of the text. Vocabulary instruction and growth is emphasized throughout the year.
