Reading Responses are not quiz or test grades but rather homework grades on assigned readings. Students are not assigned notetaking or list making but are encouraged to do so if they find it difficult to read, understand, and remember. Notes can take several forms, many of which will be discussed and modeled in class.
Parents are encouraged to:
Check assignment notebooks and parent portal for updates
Provide a quiet study location so students can read and reread carefully
"Quiz" students reading by having them tell you about what they read, answer questions you might ask from the reading ( Key Terms and People or questions in the textbook section)
Be aware of Reading Response grades as recorded in PARENT PORTAL.( SEE TOP OF HOMEWORK PAGE FOR INFORMATION AND LINK) and adjust at home reading plan accordingly.
All classroom notes are in Social Studies spiral which comes to class each day and goes home every night.
READING ASSIGNMENTS ARE TO BE DONE AT HOME AS HOMEWORK.
