In ELA 7/8 we will be working towards the New York State Grade 7 and 8 ELA Standards.
Students are encouraged to keep up to date on their assignments through Google Classroom.
I am always available for extra help during 9th period or after school.

Consequences for Failling to Follow Expectations
- Verbal Warning
- Move seats
- Conference after class, stay after school with teacher
- If the behavior is on-going a discipline referral/detention will be assigned according to the student code of conduct
Classroom Participation: 40%
Each week students are given a participation grade of up to 20 points per day, 100 points for the week.
Participation grades take into account:
-participation in classroom discussion
-completion of daily bell ringers and class activities
-following classroom expectations
**students are not penalized for absences
-Homework is given for reinforcement of skills and content that we have been working on in class.
-Homework is assigned only 1-3 times a week, not every night.
-Homework that is not completed by the due date will lose 5 points for each day that it is late.
Extra Credit opportunities arise a couple of times during each marking period. I encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities.
