Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a restful break. I'd like all of my excellent students to get 2016 off to a great start and so I'm sending this reminder of your young person's "regular" English homework assignments.
The following will continue with one change of due date:
IR (independent reading) novel - read 30 minutes each night.
DGP (daily grammar practice) - due each Monday
Vocabulary cards and quizzes - due each Thursday (New due date!)
NewsELA - as assigned
These homework assignments are new and will be posted on my website.
Actively Learn - as assigned
EdPuzzle - as assigned
Book Club Discussion Posts - as assigned
Here's hoping we all have a great 2016!
I am requesting your help in our effort to establish an inventory of novels to be used in The NCLA high school English classes.
Would you please consider donating $13 to help in this effort? Please make checks to The NC Leadership Academy. Or, if you would rather, please donate a Barnes & Noble gift card.
In support of your donation, Mrs. Faenza has agreed to allow your donation to be logged as 1.5 hours of volunteer time.
Thank you for your help, and a big thanks to those who have already contributed.
My website is kept current with due dates for upcoming assignments. Please remind your young person to check my website for due dates.
Hint - there is a MAJOR deadline due on 3/18.
This will be assigned on 1/18, giving students two months to complete the project. This project will count as one test grade.
