Welcome to SI English 7!
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! In SI English 7 we have much to accomplish. Throughout the school year we will be working on reading fluency/reading comprehension, writing (including multi-paragraph essays), vocabulary, grammar, and literary devices. We are working on the Common Core standards in reading and writing, as well as some standards in listening and speaking. In class we read, and respond to, a balance of informational materials and interesting stories.
Students are expected to read at home daily. I encourage students to choose books on topics they find interesting. It makes sense that they are more likely to read often when they have books with interesting topics/stories. Every Monday I send home a weekly reading log for homework. Students are asked to read for at least 20 minutes three times per week, and provide a brief summary. Reading logs are due each Friday. At times there may be additional homework, and students should have homework assignments written in their agendas.
I ask students to come to class prepared to work, and stay on task. They should bring paper, pencils, and a highlighter. Each student has been provided with an English notebook where most assignments/writing activities are kept. English notebooks are kept in the classroom.
I love teaching reading, and working on comprehension skills. As a teacher I strive to help my students become stronger academically, and (hopefully) enjoy learning. If you have any questions, please let me know. I'm looking forward to a great 2015-2016 school year!
