For the week of August 13 - 17, 2012
What We Will Be Learning...
This week, we will prepare for out first Embedded Assessment by taking a look at the assessment and determining what we will need to know to be successful. We will be expanding our vocabularies through using our Word Wall, and putting our new words to use in writing. We will also be working on developing our own concept of what exactly makes someone a hero.
The Nuts and Bolts of Room 231
Grading and Expectations
On their first day in our classroom, my students learned about my expectations for their behavior and about my grading system. My goal for every student is that they be successful in my classroom! Copies of my first day Prezi and PowerPoint presentations are available on our class blog. This will give you a clear picture of what to expect in Room 231 this year! On Monday, I will also be sending home a letter that details the Standards Based Grading that will be used in my classroom, as well as both of the other 8th Grade Language Arts classrooms at Clark Middle.
I am so honored to be teaching such a wonderful group of children this year. I know it will be a fantastic school year!
