What we do in English 1 and 2!
We read, we write, we think. Each student has a voice and I do my best to make sure
that each one is heard. I encourage lots of participation.
Our day starts with Grammar--everyday. We then do some type of writing/reading activity
to engage student thinking. Classroom talk is very important. No--not the students talking about
anything they want; students should be talking about the topic at hand.
The majority of the homework in this class is READING! We do not have enough time in class to
read all of our curriculum. Some outside reading is required. Students should be reading at least 20 minutes
3-4 times a week. I give a quiz on almost every reading assignment. I find that the students who struggle in my class
simply do not spend 20 minutes reading each night.
