Language Arts – December 11th – 15th

This week, will continue to prepare for the final exam (Wednesday), which covers material from the first two partials. Students have already been given a copy of a review guide and we reviewed it thoroughly last Friday. In response to the school cancellation, there will be a more detailed study guide that will be posted to the class Google Drive folder and shared to each student via email. This will be posted as early as possible, Monday morning. I will also update this blog post with a direct link when the document is available.

Students are strongly encouraged to reach out to me and ask any questions pertaining to the class materials. I understand the difficulty in having a final exam review via the web, but unfortunately this situation beyond our control. Again, please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I can be reached via email at:

I am always available.


Monday / Tuesday (December 11th/12th)  – Review for final exam. Updated / Revised study guides to be posted online and emailed to students.
