MRS. COOK- CBG ENGLISH 6 & 7

DEBORAH_COOK@CCPSNET. NET

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!

I am delighted to be teaching your sixth and seventh graders this year. I look forward to an exciting year of discovery with each of my students. This year I have created a website that is linked to Google Classroom, and this will be my "go to" place for all information regarding English and CBG news.

CHROME BOOKS ARE IMPORTANT!

  • Students must use Google docs when typing up papers.
  • Chrome books must be charged every night!
  • Chromebooks are used EVERY DAY IN CLASS!


It is important to take note that Chromebooks, once issued, are an integral part of the student supply list. Failure to bring a fully charged chromebook will cause more work at home, as classwork may not be completed.

Late work-- what you need to know

It is always an issue- turning in work on time. Everyone makes a mistake, and I understand and forgive that. However, in order to make a behavioral change, please be aware that late work has consequences.

"IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO READ, YOU DON'T HAVE THE TIME (OR THE TOOLS) TO WRITE. SIMPLE AS THAT."

~ Stephen King, former teacher and author of over 120 contemporary horror, fantasy, and science fiction books.

Keeping a calendar. . .

It is equally important that your child keep an agenda and write down all assignments that are written on the board. This way, if anything changes from the planned agenda, the student is up to date with all requirements.

I am going out on a limb here, but a large calendar that allows space for writing in due dates is a really valuable tool in sixth and seventh grade CBG. Although many of my students are EXTREMELY organized, and many of my students motivated to do their best, procrastination can be a killer. A calendar can help both student and parent know what is coming up!
