Mr. Meyers' ELA Class

The Language Arts curriculum requires that students cover various elements of the English Language Arts (ELA) Standards known as The Common Core. Each week will focus on a different aspect of the standards. The following activities will be focused on throughout the year:

    • Essay writing: literature, persuasive, synthesis
    • Reading Skills that are aligned with the Common Core State Standards
    • Spelling, vocabulary, grammar
    • Novels

 

Homework

    • Most written assignments can be handed in late (within 3 days) but each day points are deducted.
    • After school and lunch detention will be given to complete owed work.

 

Grading

The grading is as follows: Tests 30%, Quizzes 20%, Classwork 15%, Projects 15%, Homework 20%

 

Expectations

-Students are expected to be on time and in your seat ready to work when the bell rings.

-Students are expected to be prepared for class including: agenda, binder, paper, pen/pencil, and homework. 

-Students are expected to act positively in class so they do not disrupt my teaching or the other students’ learning.

-Students are expected to follow all other rules in the Student Handbook.

 

“If your behavior negatively affects my teaching or somebody’s learning, it is against the rules.”

-Mr. Meyers
