• Welcome to Language Arts Distance Learning!

    Throughout this next several weeks, please remember that we are all in this together. Assignments will not be too difficult, but will provide the content that we need to reach in the 4th quarter. Assignments should not be frustrating. If they are, please stop and email me so that I can be of assistance. We will work together to get through this difficult time.

    My office hours are from 11:00AM-3:00 PM daily, Monday-Friday. I often check emails outside of this time, but I can guarantee that I am available during this time. I will return all emails no later than 24 hours later.


    All assignments will be posted on Schoology. Videos and reading links will be attached. I will add comments to assignmnets on Schoology, so be sure to go back and check to see if you want to re-do an assignment for a higher grade.

    Assignments can be submitted online at Schoology as well. If you are having trouble submitting, you can share the assignment with me on google or email it to me at my school address.

    Assignments can be done at your own pace. The due dates are there to help keep you organized. 

    Zoom meetings are OPTIONAL.

    I will schedule Zoom meeting every 2 weeks to check in with you and see if anyone has questions.

    You can also contact me if you'd like to schedule a Zoom appointment to get help. 


    I will enter grades at least twice a week to help you know what is missing. You can re-do an assignment for a higher grade if you'd like.

    I am entering 1 grade each week in studentvue/parentvue and all other assignments will be graded on Schoology, but are considered practice.

    The grading scale will be:

    90-100 = A

    80-89 = B

    65-79 = C

    beow 65 = No Grade

    Standards we will cover in Language Arts are:

    RL.7.2: Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text; provide an objective summary of the text. 

    RL.7.9: Compare and contrast a fictional portrayal of a time, place, or character and a historical account of the same period as a means of understanding how authors of fiction use or alter history. 

    RI.7.6: Determine an author's point of view or purpose in a text and analyze how the author distinguishes his or her position from that of others.

    RI.7.9: Analyze how two or more authors writing about the same topic shape their presentations of key information by emphasizing different evidence or advancing different interpretations of facts.
