Homework/Assignments

Students are to read 20 minutes or more each evening. They are responsible for writing a response to a chosen prompt for each piece of literature read. These will be due every other Thursday. Each written response must be about a different piece of literature. They will respond on index cards.

Vocabulary and spelling quizzes will be given on most Friday's throughout the year. Students will practice for these quizzes throughout the week.



Co-Teaching Class Periods

Fifth and sixth periods offer students the opportunity to learn from and ask questions of Mr.Trahan as well as myself. This is our ninth year working together.



Reading Journals

Students are to maintain a reading journal which will be periodically checked throughout the year. Prompts and time to respond to them will be provided in class. A composition book best suits the task.
