Dowell Middle School 6th grade Language Arts instructor
Welcome back students!  Let me be the first to welcome you and your child to Dowell.  I am your child's language arts teacher.  This nine weeks will be a fun one to begin the year.  We will be doing several projects and activities. 

One main project will be their first writing workshop paper.  This will include writing a rough draft, editing, proofreading, peer conferencing, and publishing a final copy.  We will do approximately 5 papers this school year.  I will keep you updated on due dates and topics.  Your child be getting more information soon.

In academic classes, we will be reading My Brother Sam is Dead by Collier & Collier.  This is a story of the American Revolution seen through the eyes of one Connecticut family.  It's a great way to start off the year with an action packed book.  In PreAP we will be reading The Giver by Lois Lowry.  This is one of my favorite books ever written.  It's an unusual story with a complex and unique story line.  Both books are excellent and I look forward to introducing them to your child.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.  I'm here to help your child's transition to Dowell smooth and fun.  I look forward to meeting you all.
