writing for publication
Writing for Publication

  • This requires an authentic audience (not the teacher) and purpose.
  • This allows students to apply their writing to a real-world audience and purpose.

  • Non-English teachers should complete and score ONE Writing for Publication piece by January 31, 2011.

Reading Table of Contents

  • The purpose of a reading table of contents is to record the reading assignments for each student.
  • While students do not have to record every reading assignment, they must record a minimum of five readings each grading period.
reading strategies
Reading Strategies
  • Our plan is to continue and offer a variety of reading strategies to the faculty over the course of the year.
  • The first step is the recording of assigned reading in the Reading Table of Contents.
  • Teaching the Textbook: explaining how the textbook for the course is organized.
reading continued
Reading (continued)
  • In addition to textbook assignments, students should read the equivalent of one article per grading period.
  • The material must support the Core Content and Program of Studies.
  • Ninth and 10th grade reading should emphasize informational or persuasive texts whenever possible.
  • The supplemental reading may be distributed by the teacher or discovered by the students.
