All students can be successful. Reading intervention provides extra support to help students enjoy success in reading. Students are selected for reading intervention based on test scores and data which indicates a need for extra help and support in reading. Learning time is spent in both whole group instructional lessons and in small group instruction from the teacher which includes instruction and practice in specific skills as well as practical applications to reading in novel studies. Each quarter, each student’s progress will be reviewed and a determination will be made regarding whether that student would benefit from continued intervention or whether the student is able to return to elective classes.
Students are expected to demonstrate respect and responsibility at all times. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Coming to class on time every day, ready to work when the bell rings
- Adherence to the code of conduct
- Adherence to school/class behavioral expectations (SLANT, format matters, 100%, right is right)
- Following instruction the first time they are given
- Actively participating in class
- Submitting work on time and obtaining and completing work missed due to absence
Failure to meet class expectations will result in reminders of appropriate behavior, change in level and type of teacher support, loss of behavior points in a student’s grade, phone call/email to parents, or a disciplinary referral to the office.
Students who consistently meet class expectations are recognized in many ways, including paw pride coupons, extra time participating in academic games, public recognition, earning behavior points towards a student’s grade, opportunities to choose first in class activities, etc.
Helpful Hints & Reminders
Please check the parent portal regularly. Grades are updated regularly, including behavior grades, and this is the best way to be aware of how your child is progressing in class.
Students receive grades in the following areas:
This class is graded pass/fail, and students must earn 75% to pass. Please note: There is no homework for this class; however, students may complete and pass edgenuity lessons at home at any time for extra credit towards their final grade.
Please note: Work will only be graded if it has been labeled with a student’s name. No name=no grade. Check the no name basket if you think you have turned something in, but you did not receive credit for it.
Late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date.
Notes for online instruction:
Students are expected to check Schoology for new posts and assignments daily. Students are also expected to check their email daily.
When in remote by necessity learning mode, zoom meetings are required. Instruction will be given and students will receive feedback through these meetings. However, I understand that family situations vary and that there will be times when students do not have access at the particular scheduled meeting time. Therefore, I will record all meetings and they are available on request. If a student misses a meeting, it is their responsibility to watch the zoom and complete any related classwork.
Late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date with no penalty. No work will be accepted after the grade book has closed. Grade book closure dates will be communicated through email.
Work will be graded on demonstration of progress towards mastery of standards. Quality counts! Incomplete work will not receive full credit.
Communication is key. If a student is sick, has trouble accessing the internet, or has questions, please email Mrs. Green immediately. Don’t wait until your grade drops! I will work with you to make sure you are successful, please let me know how I can help.
