Ms. Amanda Wesh
Welcome Parents and Students!
This is my 11th year as a teacher within the Washington Township School District and my second year teaching at Chestnut Ridge Middle School.
We will be using a textbook entitled Glencoe Literature. It will be supplemented with other short stories and novels throughout the year. There is a strong emphasis in our curriculum on comprehension strategies and theme. These strategies include visualizing, predicting, summarizing, questioning, making connections, evaluating and synthesizing to name a few. We will be learning how to analyze texts and ultimately prepare students for a successful high school career. This year the students will have two mid-year assessments and a final exam will be given.
In writing, students will be working on at least one major piece of writing each marking period. We will be working on both fictional and informational writing. Along with our major writing pieces, students will be writing daily while responding to readings, completing quick writes to practice skills, and in causal journal entires.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my voicemail at 856-582-3535 x5509. I am looking forward to a successful school year!
