This course is an extension of the sixth grade Language Arts class. The students will concentrate on understanding sentence structure and improving sentence clarity, unity, and revision. They will look at sentences as they relate to grammatical rules and punctuation. Students will become familiar with narrative, expository, technical, and persuasive writing; the six-trait writing process will be used for writing projects. Vocabulary and spelling will also be integrated into the curriculum.
Our Class Code
1. We have respect for one another and ourselves.
2. We are on time to class and ready to work when the bell rings.
3. We don’t chew gum or eat candy in an audible or visible manner..
4. We stay in our seats until the bell rings.
5. We do our own work at all times, and we don’t share our work with our neighbors.
I have high expectations for the students in my room. I expect the students to achieve academically, as well as contribute to the classroom in a positive manner. I manage my classroom using common sense, common courtesy and the BIST guidelines. I will redirect a student for interrupting the learning process once; after that warning, if there is a second incident, the student will be expected to follow the BIST steps. My bottom line = It’s never okay to be hurtful or disruptive.
6. Write the following on the LEFT side of your notebook paper (in this order): Line 1- First and Last Name; Line 2- Teacher’s Name; Line 3- Class, Hour, Assignment; Line 4- Date. No Name Papers = No Points (even if you claim it at a later date).
7. Your homework should be written neatly.
8. Your homework will usually be due at the beginning of class.
9. Hand in your assignments on time. Late Work Policy = 1/2 credit. You have 24 hours to turn in your late assignment; if you do not turn in your assignment at that point, you will receive an after school detention. If you turn in the assignment prior to your detention time, you will not have to serve the detention.
10. Please be sure to check in with the office if you were absent.
11. If you are absent from class because of a school-related function or extra-curricular activity, you will need to get your assignments before you leave.
12. When you return from an excused absence, it is your responsibility to check the homework folder. Your name will be written on the assignment. You have one day for every day you were absent to make up your work. Please be aware of your due dates.
