    Course Description:

    Students will work on improving their literacy in the areas of reading comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, writing, and language. Thanks to a grant from the GA Dept. of Education, our school will begin the Read 180/System 44 literacy program after Labor Day. This month, all HJMS students will take the Reading Inventory this month, and Lexile scores will determine whether they qualify for this program. This program includes 


    Supply List:

    • 1" binder
    • dividers with tabs (5)
    • 1 pack lined index cards
    • 1 pack notebook paper
    • pencils 
    • pens (at least 2 colors)
    • 1 highlighter
    • earbuds with microphone



    40% grades (Formative)- reading log checks, daily in-class assignments, Read 180/System 44 online progress and quizzes

    60% grades (Summative)- Read 180 performance tasks

    Reading Logs will be completed at home. All other work will be completed in class, with many submissions through the Canvas portal and Read 180 app. Any work not completed by student will be marked as Missing and be scored as a 0 until completed. Parents should access grades through the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus to receive notifications and monitor grades, which will be entered weekly.
