Welcome to 8th Grade Literacy!
If you are reading this message, then most likely you have discovered that you have a ticket on the Team White literacy express. Congratulations!! This year will prove to be one of growth and discovery for you and your fellow travelers. I can guarantee that you will meet with success in improving your English language communication skills if you make a commitment to follow my guidance, think critically, and ask questions. Literacy may not be your favorite subject, but that doesn't mean that you won't mature in your skills and perhaps have some fun along the way. I'm excited to have you aboard.
Since all Jackson students have been issued a Chromebook, much of what we will be doing will be online. You will, however, need a folder with some looseleaf paper to hold any hard copy items that may be distributed in class and, on occasion, to jot down notes when appropriate.
This is going to be a fantastic year!
If you are unable to attend Back to School Night this year, click the link below to watch my video giving an overview of the class.
