Enriched Language Arts
This year, my classes will be participating in a 20 book challenge! The goal is for all my students to read 20 books by the end of the year. Although this challenge as a whole will not be a grade, several grades will be taken based off this challenge. Please encourage them to meet this goal!
Enriched students will participate in several project based units throughout the year. These projects will require work outside of class. I will get all required information out to students as soon as possible!
Each week students will have IXL assignments to complete. They are due on Fridays. The specific assignments are posted on the assignment calendar for this class and are assigned well in advance, so students have plenty of time to get them done. Students must get a Smart Score of 85 minimum for these to be counted as complete.
Although students are not required to complete a reading log, please encourage your students to read at home! Reading is crucial to language arts, and the more they practice the better they will be!
Each 6 weeks students will have a book report or other project to complete. These will be test grades and will be done mostly outside of class. Please make sure you are watching for these due dates and turning assignments in on time!
If your student is absent they need to get any missing assignments the day they get back. They will have an extra day for each day absent to complete those assignments. The school guidelines for late work will be strictly followed. These guidelines state that after work is 1 day late the student will receive a 70 at the highest, and if work is more than 1 day late the student will receive a 0. PLEASE make sure your student keeps up with their work and turns it in on time.
Tutorials are every morning from 7:45-8:10. Due to my coaching duties, my schedule sometimes conflicts with this time. If a student needs tutorials, they need to try to schedule that in advance with me. Students may also come to my room during study hall for extra tutorial time.
