I teach Middle School Language Arts Resource. I have two sections each of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I will cover both Reading and Writing Standards in this class. Some students have an additional Reading or Writing class in the general education setting. Class sizes are small to allow for more individualized and scaffolded instruction.
Students are expected to be responsible for their own learning and behavior. As middle-schoolers, they need to accept and apply responsibility for assignments, including classwork and tests/quizzes. I rarely give homework, but if they do not finish/complete classwork or other assignments in class, the expectation is that they will complete it at home and return it. I am flexible, however, I still hold them to a high standard in their learning.
Helpful Hints & Reminders
Every day, each student will complete a journal entry, and a Daily Language Review. Completion of these results in an automatic 100% in that category of their grade.
