For URGENT MATTERS, you may reach me by telephone at home 202 342 0529 before 7 pm.

I teach TWO SECTIONS of English 8; this page should only be used by my students in periods A and B. Due to the rotating schedule and double class period, HOMEWORK is ASSIGNED and DUE only when your class meets. Remember that each class meets FOUR TIMES in a rotating week with double periods and FIVE TIMES in a modified week with a Monday, single period schedule. Because each period does not come to class each day in a rotating week, there may be different deadlines. It's imperative to complete assignments and submit them on the due date when your class meets. Please pay close attention to due dates and note that I will include the PERIOD LETTER to help avoid confusion.

I conduct tutorial on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:20 to 3:45 pm in the 8th grade English room. Please come to seek enrichment or extra help. For regular tutorial, there is a limit of 5 students on a first-come, first-served basis. My colleague, Ms. Breitman, conducts tutorial on Mondays and Wednesdays, and she welcomes my students to attend her tutorials. Review sessions for major assessments will be held in the English classroom, but there is no need to sign up for them.

We will study a variety of texts and address the following year-long essential questions:
1. What forces shape the identity of an individual over time?
2. How does bias impact a person's life?

ASSESSMENTS AND PROJECTS and OPPORTUNITIES:


The Dreams from My Father test is on May 23, 2018 and is worth 100 points. It is closed book. Due to the weather and possible re-scheduling of the Advisory Olympics, this test may be given on May 21, 22, 23, 24, or 25th. Students have been advised to check this section of the wikispace for updates.

The English Final Exam, worth 20% of the year-long English grade, is on June 1, 2018. The exam is closed book and worth 100 points. Students will ONLY be permitted to use the provided essay planner on the exam -- no other versions or substitutions will be accepted.

Students, please discuss the exam schedule and responsibilities with your families/parents to avoid any misunderstandings and to solicit their support. Over the Memorial Day weekend, you will need to carve out at least one hour to study for the English final exam. Please see the email/handout from Ms. Chall.

While I will be absent from Wednesday, May 23 through Friday, May 25, students have known this in advance and received their study guides on Thursday, May 17th. Ms. Breitman will cover tutorial on Tuesday, May 22 and Wednesday, May 23. I held tutorial on Thursday, May 17th and will hold tutorial on Monday, May 21, Tuesday, May 29th and Thursday, May 31st.
