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:

BGB books on SOCIAL JUSTICE have been ordered and will be distributed next week.
Here is the list of choices offered to students:



1/4 due on 1/22
2/4 due on 1/29
3/4 due on 2/5
4/4 due on 2/12

Please remember to bring your new BGB to class each MONDAY, TUESDAY, THURSDAY and FRIDAY. We will start the next shared text, Inherit the Wind (ITW) next week as well. Students will also need to bring this book to class every single day that class meets.
