Summative = 50%

Late work may only be accepted for one week after its due date. After that amount of time, a zero will be recorded in Aspen. Any assignment turned in late (past due date) will be graded from 1/2 credit earned.

Each assignment must have your full name, date, ELA: and the assignment to receive full credit. Assignments turned in with no name may earn a late grade.

ELA 2020-2021 Syllabus

Course Description:

This course is designed to develop students toward becoming successful writers, speakers, listeners and lifelong readers. To accomplish this goal, all students will focus their learning and skill development within the major components of writing, speaking, analyzing and grammar mechanics. Through daily practice in spelling, vocabulary, grammar and language mechanics, students will learn to formulate well-written responses, paragraphs, stories, and essays.

This course will also include the study of literature, including short stories, poetry, and novels. Literature will be used to sharpen reading skills, develop vocabulary, and improve comprehension and identification of literary elements.

Skills learned in this course will prepare students for success on standardized tests and in higher education.

Goals and Objectives:

I will create a safe, fun, and structured educational environment that will allow students to work hard, learn, succeed, and grow not only as students, but also as people. We will also strive to meet the following academic goals:

1. Obtain at least 80% mastery on all quizzes, tests, and assessments

2. Exhibit at least 1.5 years of growth in both reading and math

3. Demonstrate an overall increase in NWEA and IRA standardized tests from the previous school year


Students are expected to give 100% effort everyday with a positive attitude about their education.

Students will be expected to:


Maintain high academic and behavior standards

Be prepared, pay attention, participate, listen and be ready to work everyday
