Welcome to English Class!
English is incredibly important because as young adults living in America, you need to be conscious of how you express yourselves. English provides the groundwork on which you will build all of your learning. Without a solid background in the English language, you will not be able to read, write, or speak well. This will adversely affect all of your other subjects in school and, ultimately, your success in life. Knowing how to present yourself to others and how to think critically about matters will help you now (as a student) and down the road in college or in the workplace.Please email me with any questions or comments!2016-2017 SchedulePeriod 1: PlanPeriod 2: 7th Grade EnglishPeriod 3: 8th Grade EnglishPeriod 4: Study HallPeriod 5: LunchPeriod 6: 7th Grade EnglishPeriod 7: 8th Grade EnglishPeriod 8: PlanPeriod 9: 7th Grade English
PLAN AHEAD FOR LONG-TERM ASSIGNMENTS!
Be sure to follow your Vocabulary & Grammar Schedule! Each month I will post the schedule on my website in the "FILE LIBRARY" page. The calendars will also appear in the top right corner of the MAIN PAGE. This way, if you forget your schedule in school, you will always know when these assignments are due. You should also check the schedule for extra credit each week. Also, use the schedule to remember when your quizzes are!!! Don't forget that these are LONG TERM assignments and are worth more points than daily homework assignments! PAY ATTENTION and note that some weeks are shorter than others, so plan ahead! Don't hurt your average because of poor time management skills!
There is also a GRAMMAR folder in the FILE LIBRARY page! For units NOT IN THE WORKBOOK, I have attached copies of your grammar for each unit!
You can help yourself by studying through this webpage! Look under the "HELPFUL RESOURCES" page to find links you can use to quiz yourself on vocabulary!
