Mr. Adams' LA/Reading Class
We are currently conducting our Individual Writing Conferences. Students, with my assistance, are analyzing their writing and making improvements. They understand that our expectation is for their writing to become progressively better with each piece that they write. We also will continue to analyze writing from other students from old standardized writing tests.
Students must turn in their “President Cleveland, Where Are You?” project. Students can either create a storyboard for based on the story or an autobiographical baseball card. Details and links to rubrics are listed on Edmodo.
Also, it is very important that your child has all of the required notebooks/composition books for my class. I am trying to emphasize accountability and organization, but it makes this task difficult when students come unprepared. For students who have their materials, they seem to have higher grades and they are grasping the material easier because they are able to refer back to earlier assignments that are in their journals.
*Each week, Robust Vocabulary will be uploaded into Quizlet. We have vocabulary review in class each day, however, students should study and review their vocabulary on a nightly basis.
