Welcome Letter/Course Requirements 

 

Dear Parents,

My name is Ms. K. D. Greaves, and your son/daughter is enrolled in my Reading Guided Study class. I am anticipating an exciting year. It is my endeavor to provide all students with challenging and educational experiences.

Reading Guided Study is a differentiated learning course. That is, literacy will be taught from multiple platforms and students will be expected to present what they have learned through multiple presentations. This course will cover content area literacy infused with technology from all disciplines. Students will receive vocabulary instruction and close reads applications from ELA, science, social studies, and math.  In addition, 2nd delivery of ELA instruction: Grammar, morphemic awareness, writing, and literary analysis.

In order to enhance learning opportunities for all students, your child will be afforded opportunities to use their smartphones during instruction. If they do not have an activated phone, a deactivated phone can still be used on our network for Internet accessibility. So if you have one just laying around the house, please allow your child to bring it to school for my class.

 I have extremely high expectations for all students. Magnet School requirements must be met in reference to a 70 or above GPA and required attendance. Periodically, check INOW to make sure that your child is completing assignments and passing tests. The categories for grades are as follows: 60% Major Tests/Performance Tasks, 40% Minor quizzes and projects, homework, and notebook checks.

 If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions please feel free to contact me via email: kgreaves@mcpss.com or during my planning period: 8:00-8:30.

Thanking you in advance for your parental involvement,

 Ms. K. D. Greaves
