Mrs. Garvey's English/Language Arts Webpage

What is happening this year? -  Our focus for the year includes informational literature, grammar, writing, vocabulary and research.  Cooperative learning stratigies are in place to aid each student with the mastery of skills and learning.  Changes have been made in the Accelerated Reader (AR) program.  Students are now required to read one fiction and one nonfiction book, take and pass corresponding AR quizzes, and complete periodic journal entries on their books. 

What is happening in class?  - In September and October, we will focus on urban areas in literature, poetry, art and research.

Materials:  Students will need a 1-2 inch binder divided into four sections, pencils, a paper supply, one black or blue pen, one red pen, colored pencils, AR books, and cooperative, engaging attitudes.  A timely notice will be given for any additional materials required for class.
