Welcome 2018-2019 8th Grade Parents and Students!
This is going to be a great year!  I am excited to work with these new 8th graders and to meet their parents.
Students will need to bring basic supplies to class everyday in order to be successful in ELA:
1.  Paper
2. Pencils
3. Pens
4. 3 different colored highlighters
5. 100 index cards per quarter (400 total- 200 at the dollar store for $1)
6. (optional) ear buds for Chromebooks.  I have headphones for all students in my classroom.

When absent, students should check the Google Classroom, weekly agenda, and syllabus to determine what they missed.  I will set up Thursday's during lunch to tutor or help students get caught up.  I will also be available in the morning before school, if students give me notice that they are coming in for help.

Homework
Students will be required to complete missing classwork at home.  Students should study stems every night for 5 minutes to prepare for bi-monthly quizzes.  Students may decide to read a text in myPerspectives to be better prepared when we discuss and annotate it in class.  Sometimes class assignments in Google Classroom may indicate late or missing.  If we are still working on a task, this may occur once in awhile.  Most of the time, the students tasks should not indicate missing, but "turned in" when they go into those tasks in the Google Classroom.

myPerspectives Text
Students log onto PowerSchool and then click on Pearson Courses in order to access their textbook.  The book contains rigorous and challenging texts.  I strongly advise students to read over any text discussed in class, especially if they are struggling with the comprehension assessments.  Students can also show parents any reading assessment they have taken in class.  The assessment will indicate the grade, the correct and incorrect questions and the strength as well as weak areas in relationship to the 8th grade standards. 

Weekly Agendas and Syllabus

The syllabus for Quarter 1 will be updated here soon.  Below are the Weekly Agendas that students have access to in Google Classroom.
