Ms. Wyant – ELA 7
SYLLABUS, CLASSROOM REQUIREMENTS AND EXPECTATIONS
As an educator, it is my goal to aid in the development of our students into effective readers and writers. In order for our students to improve upon these skills, we will be analyzing multiple texts, including novels, articles, and plays. Students will become strong writers by interpreting these texts, utilizing text details and creating a final product to showcase their understanding of the topic.
B. Student Expectations:
-Be on time and prepared for class
-Complete all assignments
-Keep an organized binder
-Participate in class activities
-Respect others at all times
-Follow all school rules
C. Class Materials:
You will be required to bring the following
items to class with you each day:
3-ring binder with 5 dividers and loose leaf paper
Dividers should be labeled as follows:
Blue/ black pens only, highlighter(s)
A box of colored pencils
A book of your choice to bring to class for independent reading.
1 composition notebook
Headphones to be kept in the classroom for usage with the chrome books. (This can be purchased at the dollar store)
Optional: A box of tissues for the classroom – Thank you!
Homework will be posted on my teacher website along with the due dates.
E. Work missed due to absence:
It is the responsibility of the student to find out what
he/she missed and to make arrangements to make up that
work. If an announced test or quiz was missed, it is
expected the student will make it up the day he/she
returns to class. Assessments are announced at least
several days in advance.
Any student who is in the building, but misses class due to
music lessons, health office visit, etc., must see me before
leaving school for class and homework assignments.
F. Grade Breakdown:
Quarterly grades will be created using the
-Writing assignments/ Writer’s notebook
Students will be informed of assignments and assessments ahead of time. Assignments will be posted daily in the classroom. A planner needs to be purchased for each student and a well kept planner is a must!
