7th & 8th Grade
Welcome to 7th/8th Grade Language Arts at Challenge to Excellence Charter School! I hope each of you had a fun-filled, relaxing summer vacation and are ready to take on the 2019-2020 school year! Please take the time to explore and familiarize yourself with this page, as it will be a very valuable resource and vital to your success in my classes!
Where can I find a course overview? Use the tabs at the top of the page to access the syllabus and general information on classroom procedures, work expectations, grading and behavior policies for 7th Grade Language Arts, 8th Grade Language Arts and Musicology.
Where can I find work that's been assigned and due dates? For daily assignments, detailed directions, extra copies of handouts, reading schedules, projects, tests, and class- specific events please use Google Calendar. Students should link their class's calendar to their account and check it daily. I try to have Google Calendar updated at least a week in advance so you can anticipate what is coming, however sometimes I have to make last minute changes based on how class went or unanticipated schedule changes. So, let's get in the habit of checking Google Calendar everyday after school.
Where are my assignments? The majority of our work will be assigned, turned in and graded using Google Classroom (with the exception of assigned nightly reading, which will be posted on Google Calendar). Please check Google Classroom for specific assignment directions, resources, PDF of class handouts and rubrics.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the information provided here, please contact me via email at email@example.com !
Let's make this year the best one yet! =]
