  1. Be on time.
  2. Sit in assigned seat.
  3. Follow directions the first time given.
  4. Be respectful to the teacher/staff and each other.
  • Course Description:
  • Resource ELA is a course designed to meet the individual needs of resource students who have an Individualized Education Plan. The class will focus on reading, comprehension, and basic grammar.

Course Goals:

  1. Students will read at least one fictional novel.
  2. Students will learn at least 5 new vocabulary words.
  3. Students will be able to write a paragraph.
  4. Students will be able to correct a sentence.
  5. Students will be able to better recall what they have read.
  • Course Texts

We will be using various fictional novels and supplementary materials from English workbooks.

In case of an absence

See the teacher to get any work that needs to be made up.

  • Teacher’s Philosophy: It is my belief that all students can learn, and deserve to be in a structured, positive learning environment where no one is singled out or discouraged from trying. I work hard to build a relationship with each student, and strive to earn their respect by being fair, firm and consistent.
  • Participation policy

Participation means not only being present, but paying attention to what is going on in class. Sleeping is not considered participation. It (participation) is very important because we do a lot of work together. We also do not have enough textbooks to go home, so if you have poor attendance, it will make it difficult to earn a good grade.

  • Grading

Grades are earned, not given! Most assignments will have a point value. Work that we do in class will be considered a participation grade. The grades will be distributed as follows:

40% Participation

40% Daily/Independent work including “Do Nows”

20% Tests/ Quizzes.
