Second Semester

Ninth Grade:

We are working on Unit Two in our textbooks and preparing for our FSA tests. 

Tenth Grade:

We are looking at speeches, writing a speech, and preparing for FSA. 

Teacher Office Hours:

Monday - Thursday 7 - 7:35 am

Tuesday - Friday 2:55 - 3:30 pm 

Students are encouraged to take charge of their learning and see me to schedule time to review material that they could use additional help with. Students should NOT wait until the day before an important assignment is due or a quiz is scheduled. Part of being a successful student is the need to be an organized and prepared learner.   

 

Literacy Project:

Due March 6

9th Grade - The second semester literacy assignment has been posted below in the PDF section above the calendar.  This quarter you must read a memoir (nonfiction, personal story).  Your book must be approved by a parent or guardian.  Please see the PDF below for sign-off instructions.  Books should be chosen by Jan. 23.

10th Grade - The second semester literacy assignment has been posted below in the PDF section above the calendar.  This quarter you will be responsible for reading 6 magazine articles/blogs, annotating them, and responding to a written prompt.  More specific details are in the PDF below.

Literacy projects are long-range projects with due dates that are projected weeks in advance.  This means they are due on the date posted with NO EXCEPTIONS.  Students who are sick on the day that a literacy assignment is due must still hand in the assignment that day (via email, parent/sibling/classmate drop-off).

 A sample MLA formatted paper is available to you through the following link on the VCS Media Center's page.  This sample paper was provided by Lake Sumter State College.  Please review this prior to submitting any essays. MLA format is a requirement.  

Another wonderful writing resource is the Purdue Online Writing Lab, also known as the Purdue OWL.  I will refer to this site in class often.  Click here to access the site.
