    Course Description:

    Welcome to sixth grade English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR)! In this course, we will focus on developing and strengthening your reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills, through a variety of engaging activities, discussions, and assignments. We will explore different literary genres, analyze texts, and improve grammar and vocabulary. I look forward to exploring the important concepts of critical literacy with you.

    Grading 

    Grading Scale 

    Grading Categories

    Letter grades are assigned based on a percentage of points accumulated:

    90-100% A

    80-89% B

    70-79% C

    60-69% D

    59% or lower F 

    Final semester grades will be comprised of the following weighted categories:


    Tests/ Major Projects - 40%

     

    Quizzes/ Daily Assignments - 60%

    Tutoring:

    KHMS has tutoring days on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday after school from 3:45 pm - 4:15 pm. Thursday morning from 7:45 am - 8:10 am.

    Late Work

    There should be little or no late work. On the rare occasion that you do forget to complete an assignment, I will accept late work UP TO THREE DAYS after the due date. This three-day extension is considered the deadline. Students may earn 70% credit until the deadline; however, the assignment will receive a score of ZERO once the deadline has passed. **Some projects will have specific deadlines that are NON-NEGOTIABLE. (The late work policy will not apply)**

    Class Norms:

    • Academic Integrity: Maintain honesty in all academic work.

    • Respect: Treat your peers, teachers, and classroom respectfully

    • Preparedness: Come to class on time, and bring the required materials.

    • Participation: Actively engage in class discussions, activities, and group work.

    • Responsibility: Take ownership of your learning, ask questions, and seek help when needed; come to tutoring.

    • Collaboration: Foster a positive and supportive learning environment by collaborating with classmates, and respecting diverse perspectives.

    Academic Integrity

    Students are expected to perform all work and tasks with academic integrity; that is, cheating is not permitted. The most serious form of cheating is plagiarism in which students submit someone else’s work as their own. CHEATING WILL RESULT IN A ZERO “0” for the assignment and may result in further disciplinary action. JISD plagiarism protocols will be followed.

    In closing, I would once again like to welcome you to Kitty Hawk Middle School and to Sixth Grade Reading Language Arts (RLA). This school year will be challenging, but I look forward to working with you as you continue to develop your critical literacy skills. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
