Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year!  I am pleased to have a site where students and parents can access my class information!  English Language Arts is a course comprised of: reading and responding to grade level fiction and non-fiction, multi-genre writing, and listening and speaking skills to communicate ideas and ask probing questions.

Home work initially consists of reading for at least 30 minutes a night to ensure AR (Accelerated Reader) point goals are met each quarter.  Starting in September a monthly book review will be required in ELA Universal Access. Students will have a copy of the format of the book review.

Planners and binders have been provided for each student.  Planners are used to help students with organization and time management, and they are a great source for parents to check for homework.

Our school wide AVID strategy we will be using every day in class to prepare students for college and the work force is:  W.I.C.O.R.
W. = writing
I. = inquiry
C. = collaboration
O. = organization
R. = reading critically
