215 | 6th / 7th Reading and Language Arts ~ Mr. Osorio

Welcome to 6th / 7th Grade English and Language Arts !
Mr. Osorio
                               Room 215                               

                                                
This year in our middle school literacy classes we will be aligning a novel to each of our units of study in our Literacy classes. There will be 4 novels total for the school year. Your child will be assigned a novel based on their Lexile level. This novel will be needed for classroom instruction and assessment.  We will release the assigned novel approximately 2 weeks before each new unit begins, as your child’s Lexile level may change and we want to make sure they are reading an appropriately challenging book.        

If you need financial assistance in obtaining a copy of this book, 
please let myself or Dr. Albani know ASAP.

Thank you for your continued support!
~Mr. Osorio

Policies and Procedures   

Daily ELA  supplies needed:

Subject specific notebook, folder, pencil pouch containing pencils, different pens, colored pencils (if possible).

Homework Policy:                                                                                                                                    

Reading s homework is not given daily but is 10% of overall grade.  If homework is incomplete, students may receive a zero in grade book.

Extra Credit: 

Extra credit is never given on an individual basis to boost scores to the next letter grade on report cards.   

Late Work:                                                                                                                      

Late homework is not accepted for a grade. Homework is due at the beginning of class. Students who forgot to complete the work, forgot the homework in their locker or who do not have it with them in class may receive a "missing" score in the grade book which counts as a zero. 

Absent Work:                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Students will have the same number of days to complete work after an absence as the days they were absent. I encourage students to use the homework calendar to be sure they complete all homework. It is the students responsibility to seek out the teacher for any handouts that were given during an absence. 

Grading Policy:

Your grades will be given in the following categories:

  • Assignments (39%)
    • Any assignment started and/or completed in class (handouts, reviews, graphic organizers, etc.),  
  • Assessments (41%)
    • Tests/Quizzes will be given throughout the quarter to check for understanding and application of learned concepts.  Quarterly projects will also fall under this section unless otherwise stated and will be completed individually or in groups.  Pop quizzes may be given and are unannounced. 
  • Homework/Participation (20%)
    • Assignments are to be completed at home.  Homework is used to reinforce concepts taught in class, as well as teach responsibility.  Participation in class discussions must to take place to show formative understanding of learned concepts and ideas.
