Class Information


Most everything you will need will be on Canvas this year. It includes a calendar of due dates for homework, quizzes and tests. You can also downlaod extra copies of the classwork and find opportunities for extra practice.



Every day we will have at least 15 minutes of Designated Independent Reading Time (DIRT). This is a graded time where students are expected to have a book at the ready and read silently.   



 Everyday we will write. Sometimes in formal compositions, sometimes editing writings we have already begun, and sometimes free writes for fun.



Daily grade corrections will be handed back to your student. They will need to get all corrections into me in a timely manner. 

Test corrections must be completed in tutorials  on Thursday afternoon, Tuesday morning or Friday morning.
