Welcome Lobos!

My name is Ms. Davila. I am your child's 7th grade reading teacher. I am very excited to have your child in my classroom! I believe it is important to create an authentic student-teacher relationship with your child in order to teach them successfully each day. I work on pushing my students to the best of their ability. With your participation and guidance, I am looking forward to a fabulous year!

*****PreAP Prerequisite***** Summer Reading is a prerequisite for PreAP English. I am attaching the PDF file below which provides information regarding summer reading. All preAP students must read Part I of Farewell to Manzanar  before the first day of school (August 28th). The summer reading journal is due on September 1st but needs to be brought to class on August 28th to take notes from class in. (The summer reading journal will count as 1 of the 3 composition books needed for the year). 
 
 
Grades:
Please check your child's grades routinely via parent access- eschool. Missing assignments are usually the culprit for a low grade average. Please make sure your child keeps up with their assignments and homework. This is all crucial to their grade and success in my class. Thank you!

The Pearl Newspaper Project - Info. sheet

Use this information sheet to complete your newspaper project. This is due on Monday, Dec. 3. It is a major grade.
 
The final newspaper must be completed on legal size paper (one sheet will be provided to the student). You can extend the legal size paper by taping one or two sheets of plain copy paper. You can type and print your articles and glue them on the final draft. You can glue on multimedia (clip-art, graphics) onto the final newspaper but most of it needs to be hand drawn. You can trace pictures onto your final newspaper (this counts as drawing). 

Girl_Fighter_Hero_play

This is the play we have read in class (10/17/17) This can be used to answer the worksheet packet student received on 10/17. 
 
They only need to read and use "Girl. Fighter. Hero." Pages 6 and 7 of this PDF are not required to answer the questions. 
Above are the PDF files you will follow in order to get set up on Remind (note ELA and Preap are separate).
