Welcome to the Workshop!
This year, 9th grade will be embracing a "workshop" style of learning. I'll go over what them means as we get into the year, but let's just say that, for the most part and with a few parameters, you'll be reading books of your own choosing. Be advised: YOU WILL BE READING AND WRITING A GREAT DEAL IN THIS CLASS!!! Also, vocabulary. LOTS of vocabulary. Like every week. Words are important!
We will be using Google Classroom as our Learning Management System. I am working to be as environmentally friendly as possible, so MOST of your work will be posted and completed online. It's important that your keep up with your assignments and, if you find yourself falling behind, let me know. I'm generally pretty forgiving and will work with you to get you caught up, but YOU HAVE TO LET ME KNOW! Besides my home page, I have listed your codes below.
Remind is a group text messaging system that I use in my class. Once again, you will get a code to sign up for Remind and the expectation is that you will do so ASAP. Occasionally students can earn extra points for responding to a Remind or carrying out some action that I request via remind. Parents are welcome to sign up, as well. There is a special function that will allow you to sign up as a parent.

Below is the link to the Georgia Common Core Standards. At any given time, we will be addressing at least one, but more often than not, more than one, Standard. Students will have a variety of ways to show mastery.
