7th and 8th grade Reading Workshop
In Reading classes, students develop their ability to

develop "fix-it" strategies for when meaning breaks down
identify books that appeal to each reader individually, allowing them to grow through
improve phonics and decoding skills as needed.
pencil and notebook
sense of humor, curiosity, and kindness.
Proficiency grades in this class (70% of the overall grade) will be divided between making progress towards individual reading goals and participating in the community of readers.
These will include an extended personal response to one completed book and a critical analysis of another.
Students will set and work towards personal page goals.
Additional assignments will fall in the 30% "CCR" grades.
Schoology and Google Drive for assigning and collecting work.
Notability for taking notes and writing responses.

Students are expected to read 1-2 hours per week outside of school.
Encourage your child to read at home, in the car, while waiting at appointments, etc.
Audiobooks, e-books, reading aloud to younger siblings, ALL COUNT.
This year I'm looking forward to supporting students through individual reading conversations, and building a community of readers.
Independent, Free Choice Reading
Research proves MORE READING is the single best way to improve at reading, which in turn leads to improved school and career success.
Students read at their own level and self-select books.
I prioritize time at school to find and read books.
I encourage students to try a variety of genres.
The expectation is an honest and focused attempt to increase the amount of reading done.
