Prepared students will need pencil and paper on a daily basis. Now is a great time to stock up on supplies for the remainder of the year as they are inexpensive. The FRYSC
also has these available as well. Each student has been loaned a literature book for the school year and we will also learn from a classroom set of grammar books. We also have a consumable workbook for each student. One is provided free of charge.
WE WILL CONCENTRATE HEAVILY ON IMPROVING THIS AREA AS WELL AS COMPREHENSION SKILLS.
STUDENTS WILL COMPLETE WRITINGS IN FIELDS OF PERSONAL NARRATIVE, LETTER FORMAT, ESSAY, AND TRANSACTIVE COMPOSITION. THEY WILL CONTINUE TO WORK TOWARD TOP SCORING ON DEMAND ANSWERS. STUDENTS WILL PRACTICE STAND ALONE ON DEMAND WHICH TAKES 40 MINUTES AND PASSAGE BASED ON DEMAND WHICH TAKES 90 MINUTES.
STAND ALONE ON DEMAND-IS A PROMPT THAT DRAWS ON A STUDENT'S MEMORY AND BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE. A STUDENT'S ANSWER WILL BE APPROXIMATELY 3 PAGES.
PASSAGE BASED ON DEMAND-PROVIDES AN ACTUAL READING FOR THE STUDENTS TO RETRIEVE INFORMATION FROM TO ANSWER A QUESTION. A STUDENT'S ANSWER WILL BE APPROXIMATELY 3 OR MORE PAGES.
