How Will We Study?
We will study individually (self-paced reading, grammar, etc.) We will study in pairs, in small groups, and as a class. We will practice writing through daily journal prompts. We will read books individually through programs such as Reading A-Z, News2you, etc. Writing prompts, assignments and other reference helps will be posted in Canvas. We will learn programs such as Kami, Google or Adobe slides, etc. to help us demonstrate what we have learned. We will also learn and practice AVID strategies.
Grading will include the following:
1. Worksheets, assignments, quizzes, tests, vocabulary, and other assigned materials
2. Writing prompts
