Remote Schooling Update: Please use our Google Classroom for all information, materials, and assignments. I invited all students, and there is a comprehensive digital information form, complete with videos and policies, for all students and parents to view and complete. We're going to make this year GREAT, not just different! Please email me with any questions, ideas, or concerns.
Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade English Language Arts Classes with Mrs. Floss
This year will be an exploration of language: written, read, and expressed. All students will enjoy participating in their learning, rather than being witnesses to it.
We are a community of readers and writers learning for ourselves throughout our lives!
I feel fortunate to be able to embark on this wonderful, fruitful journey of learning. Each student who wants to will succeed in a way that goes beyond mere test scores to prepare you for success in whatever you choose to do in the future.
This class is set up for you to learn in the way that is best for you. At many times, each student will be reading and writing different texts based on the same lesson. This way everyone can engage in learning in a way that is interesting, useful, and challenging for your own interests, abilities, and learning styles.
Your ability to communicate effectively, write well, and analyze what you read, see, and hear is central to this class. These skills will help to make your future more vibrant!
Additional work, practice, and help may be given to any student who struggles with any assessed skill. I am here to teach, explain, inspire, and foster dreams. You are here to learn, try, succeed, and dream. They both take hard work, dedication, creativity, and grit. I promise you will become a better reader and writer this year! With those, your future is limitless!!!
Please be POLITE, POSITIVE, PREPARED, & PRODUCTIVE.
(I will, too.)
In this class and actually in life, it’s not where you are, it’s how much you grow!
