Hello and welcome to Ms. Parker's Reading and English web page. I would like to first give you some overall information about the class. The grade percentage in the class is as follows: Classwork and Homework= 60%, Quizzes= 20%, Tests= 20%. The students keep a notebook which has everything that is done in and out of classs for each six weeks. This notebook is graded every six weeks and counts as a classwork/homework grade.

What are we doing in Reading Class? This six weeks we are reading and participating in activities pertaining to the book "The Wave". It goes along with the Holocaust unit that we are doing in English. The students are excited about reading the book.

What are we doing now in English class? We have just finished our Poetry unit and "The Odyssey". You as parents should be very proud. The students did an excellent job on the assignments and activities that went along with the unit. Our next unit is the Holocaust. The students will be reading the book "Night" by Elie Weisel. It is about his account as a prisoner in Auschwitz and Buchenwald.

Final exams are coming up. They will be May 21-24. The finals given will cover information from the whole second semester.

Please feel free to e-mail me or contact me at school with any questions or concerns you may have.
