ELD Homework

Students are expected to be reading at home every night for 30-60 minutes.

This can include reading:

  • books that they choose
  • to a sibling or family member
  • news articles
  • magazines
  • recipes

Students may also have homework if they did not finish work in class or there is an extension to a classroom project.
That information should be found in their planners if work outside of class should be done.

Class Activities

6th Grade

Stories do not always have to be fictional.

For our first unit we are learning about Memoirs.Through this unit we will be working on sharing our personal stories through writing and reading memoirs.

7th Grade

“Language is Power”

This year, students’ goals are to read critically, write consciously, speak clearly, listen carefully, and tell their truth. Throughout the school year, we will be exploring the many ways that ‘Language is Power’. In units 1 and 2, students will be reading The Only Road/El único destino, by Alexandra Diaz. Students will be discovering the hidden power of storytelling, and how writers use language to bring awareness to real life challenges of people around the world.
