                                                                             Reading Seminar
Course Objectives:

  • To improve all students' reading comprehension of nonfiction text by reviewing and practicing individual reading skills such as making inferences, evaluating and clarifying, finding main ideas, to name a few.
  • To increase students' written and verbal vocabulary
Students will be tested on one lesson from their Wordly Wise vocabulary books every other week.  Therefore, studying for vocabulary tests will be the primary homework focus for students outside of class. The tests are rather challenging, so studying will be homework enough. Students will also be reading articles from Upfront magazine and implementing close reading strategies.  Grading will be completed in the following manner:

  • Tests/Quizzes = 50%
  • Homework/Classwork = 40%
  • Participation = 10%
