Welcome to my online classroom.

For 2016-2017 Seniors: Senior Book Assignment has been posted!

Generally speaking, students in my English classes will test weekly on vocabulary and spelling terms, grammar terms or literary elements, and the literature we have studied. They will also be expected to submit a wide variety of writing assignments, ranging from short in-class assignments to fairly large portfolios. The writing is intended to help students focus on topics covered in class, expand their understanding of topics, as well as to think deeply and creatively. Writing assignments are a significant portion of a student's grade.

Since we are becoming a technology driven society and it is important for students to have basic computer skills, students will be expected to use programs like LibreOffice (which includes an outstanding word processing program) and access online sites like Quizlet, the school website and, of course, their student email accounts. Some of their work may need to be submitted to me via email.

Student online textbooks, audio readings of text selections, and a wide variety of study helps are available online at www.pearsonrealize.com/#/. Students have a login ID and password. So any student with internet access has 24 hour access to his or her textbook, etc.

Please visit my suggested educational website links page for a number of useful sites. For example, Quizlet is a website where students can study for upcoming tests. When students log in to their class (English I, etc.) they will find a variety of practice sets. These will include their vocabulary and spelling terms, grammar terms, literary elements. These will be available to coincide with their weekly tests on these areas. I understand that Quizlet offers Apps for phones as well. I will also upload study sets for a number of the works of literature we will be studying.

In the classroom handouts sections there will be materials that are required for assignments and/or testing. Grammar terms & literary elements are under general handouts. Vocabulary has its own folder.

Portfolio Writing Assignments are located in the folder for each class. Students are required to have a one-inch binder dedicated to their portfolio writing only, which is kept in the classroom.  All writing assignments are to be completed in dark ink.

 

Ever the best,

Micheal Bergstrom
