7th Grade English
Welcome to 7th grade English at Weatheford Middle School! I have high expectations for all of my students and expect each of you to take an active role in your education. This year we will be exploring grammar, usage, and mechanics of English through writing. We will develop our research and writing skills through narrative, informational/expository, and argument writing projects.We will also practice literacy skills with a novel as well as several works of nonfiction.
*All rules outlined in the school handbook will also be enforced.
Students will have many weekly grades from homework, bellwork, and class participation. Tests, papers, and projects may count for 2 or more grades depending on the scope and size of the assignment. We will be doing a lot of collaborative learning in groups this year, therefore there will be several participation grades taken, as well.
Make-up work/Late work
Students will be responsible for any work they miss while absent. School policy allows students one make-up day per day missed to complete make-up work. Students requiring assistance with make-up work may come see me during Advisory “RAP” time.
All assignments need to be turned in at the beginning of class on the day due. Any late work will automatically be docked 25 points and will no longer be accepted after we have passed that particular unit.
Lesson plans and other information about my classes can be found on the WMS website at www.wpsok.org. Parents are welcome to contact me by phone (772-2270 ext. 4302) during my conference time at 11:20-12:08, or by email anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions or concerns about your student, grades, assignments, etc. are welcome.
