Mrs. Beverly Matos « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Welcome to my Language Arts website.  Fall is in the air and we are hurtling toward the holidays!

In my 7th grade classes, we are asking ourselves the Big Question, "Does every conflict have a winner?"  We have started a text set on "Competition" which includes the short story, "Amigo Brothers," as well as web articles, news and magazine articles and a painting.  My 8th graders are studying the Big Question, "Can all conflicts be resolved?"  My first period class is studying the classic "Flowers for Algernon," while periods 4, 5 and 7 are closely reading a text set entitled "Human Vs. Machine."

Please encourage your son or daughter to keep up with their AR reading, as it is easy to fall behind.  The second nine weeks 25% goal is due October 23.  Please feel free to e-mail or call me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Sincerely,

Beverly Matos
