Ms. Maltese’s English Language Arts Class Syllabus

Holy Angels Catholic Academy

cmaltese@holyangelsbayridge.org  

Grades: 5th-8th Grade

Course Description:

This language arts class is designed to increase your child’s communication skills through reading, writing, speaking and the study of the English language. Our primary focus in language arts class will be the mastery of different writing styles, demonstration of the rules of grammar, and the ability to have students express themselves effectively through various mediums of communication in direct correspondence to the Common Core State Standards. This year your child can expect to read a variety of fiction and non-fiction text including novels, short stories, dramas, poetry, and essays. Writing assignments will include journal writing, essays, critiques, and creative pieces. Vocabulary, spelling, and grammar assignments will also be an important part of this class. Since we are a community of learners, your children should expect to work often in cooperative learning situations and to present information to their peers in collaborative teams as well as individually.

Class Expectations:

  1. Be Prepared: You must bring all requested supplies to class everyday, ready to learn.
  2. Be Polite: You will be respectful, considerate, and polite to all people and property at all times.
  3. Be Productive: You will come to class and use all of the resources available to learn.

Homework:

All homework will be posted on the school website by 3:00 pm. You are expected to check the website daily and hand in assignments the next day. I expect that your name is on all assignments and that is written neatly. For every missing assignment a point will be deducted from the final homework grade.

Grading: Classwork 20%, Homework 15%, Project 10%, Quiz 15%, Test 40%

Contacting the Teacher:

The best method of communication for this class is via email. Please keep in mind that I will get to all emails as soon as possible. I only respond to emails Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30am – 5:00pm, after 5:00pm I will respond the next day.
