Welcome to Literature & Language Arts!
The class will work on improving their reading, verbal, and written skills using the 8th grade Literature text by Pearson, along with other written and instructional technology resourses.
Class Goals: My primary goals for this class are:
Class Expectations and Rules:
Consequences may be given in any order. Some behaviors of a more serious nature (major infractions) will not be given warnings.
Homework: Homework may not be assigned every night, but will always be valuable and related to the work done in class that day.
Materials: All students are expected to come to class each day with the following items:
It is not acceptable for students to borrow these items from other students every day.
Attendance/ Make-up work: It is extremely important that students are in class every day. If a student is absent, it is the student’s responsibility to get any work they missed while they were absent.
Tardy Policy: Students are expected to be on time to class and ready to participate. Students who are tardy 3 times in a week will make up the missed time after class the following week after school and parents will be notified.
Late Work: Late work will be discounted by 30% until the end of the unit being studied. Late work received after a unit is complete, but before the end of the quarter, will be discounted by 50%. No late work will be accepted after the end of the current quarter. It is important that students turn in work on time and keep up with the work in the class.
Extra Credit: Extra Credit will be available at the end of each quarter, and it will be available to students who have turned in all assignments for the quarter.
The grading policy will be as follows:
