All that is about to change.
And we can't wait!
This will be my third year keeping a class blog, and I'm hoping to make it a worthwhile place for parents (and students) to visit.
Here you'll find information about what's going on in ELA class, links to books I like, etc.
For example, here a couple of books that I read this summer:
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher: an intense story about teen suicide and the impact on those left behind.
The Secret of the Fortune Wookie by Tom Angleberger: I took a picture that ended up on the author's blog! http://origamiyoda.wordpress.com/2012/08/24/real-rugboni-spotted/
If you are interested in how ELA class will change to relect the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, please see this resource from the national PTA: http://www.pta.org/7thGradeFeb4.pdf
Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you're most looking forward to this school year.
