My ELA Knights Core Classes are 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 6th period. Advisory and RTI is during 4th period and my ELA Academy is during 7th period.  If students are absent or in some instances made a poor grade, students have the ability to download the assignment and improve their score. This webpage is another opportunity for students to make sure they are completing all their assignments. If students are not completing their assignments or doing poorly on the assignments, it's not just about a grade in a grade book. If grades are low or missing that means students are missing content and aren't learning. I want this webpage to be used as another way to give students chances to learn the content deeply.


This webpage is a great tool to use with access to Infinite Campus-- if a grade is missing, you can find the assignment here to complete. If you forgot the questions at school or didn't get a copy because you were absent, always check this website to access the materials.
