    First Nine Weeks

    English Language Arts                                                    
     In the 1st nine weeks we will be focusing on themes and central ideas of different literary works, poetry, and informational text. We will also analyze how a character, event, or idea is introduced, illustrated, and elaborated in a text. Different types of genres will be introduced along with how an author develops the point of view of a narrator or speaker.
      In writing we will review grammar and the different types of editing marks. They will be able to write short pieces using the correct organization and style that is appropriate to the specific task given.

         Reading is a very important part of my classroom. Students are required to bring a book to class each day and be ready to discuss or write about it at any given time. They will not be required to keep a reading log, but I will strongly encourage them to read at home. Each nine weeks, they will be required to read a certain number of books from different genres. A.R. tests are available for them to take, but do not count as a grade.
