Welcome to Mr. Case's English 1 and English 2 STAAR EOC Intervention Class! 

Description: This class is designed to help students reach passing standards, who have previously not met standards required to pass, or "approach grade level" on either the 8th grade STAAR Reading, or STAAR English I and/or English II EOCs. There will be a wide variety of platforms and media used to facilitate assignments and assessments, so you will need to be prepared to submit work both on paper and electronically. 

 

My Schedule: I only teach 1st-5th period, so I am generally only on campus from 7:40 through 11:40. My regular tutorial times are Academic Period (10:22-10:45) and before school from 7:40 to 7:55 Monday through Friday.  I can arrange to be on campus earlier, if you need to see me before 7:40, but I do not have any after school tutorial times. 

 

Classroom Expectations:

1. Bring your "A" game to class

2. Keep phones put away on silent or off.

3. Follow all class procedures

4. Follow all school student expectations
