Welcome to the 2021-22 school year. You can find my syllabus on Schoology or click here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TjvwgBj8kyaT-JhPGsW6-8C5519uYpWAEtlPVw9tBw0/edit?usp=sharing My tutoring time each week is Tuesday mornings from 8:25-8:55. Your student is welcome to come in before or after school any day of the week as long as they tell me ahead of time. This year we will be using Quill as our way to cover grammar in a differentiated format. We will access our informational text and short stories through Actively Learn this year. We do 2 novels in my class: Love that Dog and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. We also watch CNN10 to stay tuned into daily news and use this as a tool to discuss and critically think about the world as a whole. Also, we work a lot on team-building skills in 6th grade! We cover Narrative Writing, Problem-based Units, Argumentative Writing, and Literary Analysis. Please check Schoology to see daily announcements, important testing information, and also to see what homework your child has been assigned.
