Student Interest Survey
Reading
For the first two weeks of school, we will be laying the foundations for the rest of the entire school year.

In order to promote the greatest level of success for each student, with my guidance, learners will...
  • create our class procedures, rules, and norms.
  • discuss the importance of netiquette and online safety. (Much of our learning will be collaborative and digital.)
  • read and discuss a selection of literature on the theme of "Making your Mark." to practice employing reading strategies.
  • take a universal reading screener so that each student's learning can be customized to meet his/her needs.
Language
We will begin the first two weeks of school...
  • discussing the elements of great writing by analyzing great writing.
  • analyzing blogging and how it causes reflective and personal learning while providing data and formative assessment to customize learning for each student.
  • begin blogging as a tool to reflect and share their learning.
  • develop online and blogging expectations.
  • create an editing tool to support self- and peer editing. (The tools is called COPS= Capitalization, Organization, Punctuation, Spelling)
