Grading this year will be both traditional A-F grades and Standards based. Students will receive scores based on their successful completion of assignments given in Language Arts and Social Studies. They will also be given a 1-4 rating on the curriculum standards in each of the areas created by the district. If you have any questions, please let me know.
In Lanugare Arts, we will be reading 3-5 class novels, doing projects and responses based on their content. We will also be working on the 3 types of writing - narrative, persuasive and informative writing. These will be focused on topics both using the novels as well as other projects. Students will also have daily grammar lessons, as well as journals they will be keeping.
In Social Studies, the focus is Ancient World cultures. We will be learning about these cultures and the impacts they have had on the modern world.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
