We are well on our way to achieving awesome things in Room 140. Three weeks into the new year and I cannot wait to see what becomes of this batch of 7th grade students.
This website is where you can get news about my (Mr. James) class as well as connect to my students in the US and even students around the world!
Be sure and subscribe (it’s a painless process) over on the right so you can get all the latest updates about what’s going on in class.
Things to look forward to:
- Knowsys quizzes (Pre AP classes only) – Knowsys is a SAT vocabulary preparation program that is used in JH and HS English classes
- Blogging – Every student has their own blog and will use it to connect with me, each other, and students from around the world.
- Novels – We will be reading some novels in class this year (don’t worry, I have plenty of copies for everyone so no need to spend any money)
- Classcraft – If your student has mentioned Classcraft, ask them about it. It is a system I use to help engage students in learning and help encourage positive behaviors in the classroom. You can find out more about it here.
