    Philosophy of Education

    All children are unique and learn in uniquely different ways and at different rates. Children learn through inquiry, from their peers and by example. As an educator it is my role to provide the student with a learning atmosphere that allows each of these opportunities. I must consider the whole child, meeting him/her at their level, encouraging and cultivating natural talents, allowing the students to reach their fullest potential.

    COURSE DESCRIPTION

     This course is English Language Arts. Each APS ELA unit is grounded in recurring standards that emphasize textual evidence, academic vocabulary, effective communication, and narrative writing experiences. The curriculum is designed to ensure that students are building the necessary skills to be competent readers, writers, critical thinkers, and decision makers. Students will receive a holistic, quality learning experience that moves through the gradual release model of teaching. This model will allow ample opportunities for students to see content and skills modeled; students will have plenty of time to practice in small groups, and finally show their understanding through independent work. Embedded within the unit are ample formative assessment opportunities (discussions, constructed responses, and short sustained writing tasks.) It is the goal that students will leave prepared for a quality high school learning experience and be equipped with the skills to place them on a trajectory towards college and career readiness

     

     

    TEXTS, READINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES

     Required Text: Although we do not have a specific required text, the students are required to consistently read throughout this course. The students will participate in book talks throughout the year which will be taken as a grade. Useful Websites: Helpful websites to visit are newsela.org, commonlit.org, and readworks.org. 

     

    Evaluation Procedures:

    The school-wide assignment tasks and assigned weights include the following: Homework (10%), Classwork/Participation (30%), Quizzes (15%), Projects (25%), Tests (20%).   

     

    It is our school policy that a minimum of two (3) grades per week will be entered into the Infinite Campus Grade book and available for you to review on the Parent Portal (see Counselor for further details).  Progress reports will be sent home monthly.
