Course Description and Course Content:
Students will work collaboratively in groups, independently, and participate in classroom discussions while learning to actively listen to classmates' viewpoints, opinions, and ideas. They will continue to explore literature in all genres, develop their vocabulary and writing skills, apply them in their speaking, and learn to appropriately use technology as a resource in research. Students must maintain a 60% passing level in order to complete the course.
Please see teacher website for SOL content or click this link:
Writing: Reflective, Expository, Persuasive, and Research. Nonfiction, Vocabulary, Grammar, Sentence Structure, Fiction, Drama, and Poetry.
Please come to class on time, prepared, and ready to learn. Be responsible, be respectful, and be productive – our Laurel Park Core Values. Treat others how you would want to be treated. Work as a team, this is your classroom and we want this to be a safe place for everyone to learn and be themselves. Gum is allowed in class until I see it. Once I see it, (bubble, on floor, on desk, on someone else, etc.) there will be no more. Water is allowed in a clear bottle and there will be a time for snack during Core 3. Any concerns you may have may be discussed with Mrs. Justice before or after class, but not during our class’ instructional time.
It is my belief that all students can learn with the use of various learning tools and high expectations.
