What we will be learning this year:

We will be focusing on the multiple themes of heroism, a perfect society, overcoming darkness and making a difference. We will read excerpts from multiple novels including, Wrinkle in Time, The Giver, Fahrenheit 451, Night and The Diary of Anne Frank. We will be using the Springboard curriculum as well as other supplemental materials to improve in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. All curricula will be aligned with the Common Core state standards and students will be evaluated using the BAME scale. All students will have multiple opportunities to show their skills in relation to the standards. Please review the grading policies in the class handout section and do not hesitate to contact me with questions.

Also a focus this year is READING FOR FUN!!! We will be doing reading for fun in class; as well as there will be prizes for when students finish reading books #makereadingfunagain
