w/ Jenn Moore
This year we will build upon skills learned last year while preparing for deeper literary studies next year. We will read a lot, write, research, speak, present, and listen in order to build critical thinking skills and learn to be more independent learners. Our goals are to feel confident in our efforts and abilities while taking responsibility for our own learning, growing our vocabulary, and possibly becoming more empathetic humans. WELCOME to our home page!
Students and parents may contact me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond as soon as appropriately convenient. Please understand LISD is unable to send or receive emails from @yahoo accounts. All school work may be accessed through Canvas . Please be proactive about missed work when absent, and check in DAILY anytime you are an online learner (asynchronous).
