English 7

  • Welcome to 7th grade English! This year there are three 7th grade English teachers, and we are all working together to make this an engaging and enriching year.  Throughout the year, you can expect activities and assignments that push you to become more proficient readers and writers.  This will be an exciting year, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all reach your potential.

    Below, you will find some important grading and classroom information:

    Grading Policy:
    Tests, Papers, Projects 50%
    Homework: 20%
    Quizzes: 20%
    Participation 10%

    Homework Policy:
    Each "class check" HW is worth 5 points.  Each collected HW is subject to more points, as the teacher sees fit.  No late HW will be accepted.

    Absence Policy:
    You have the same amount of days as your absence to make up missed work.  Please see me as soon as you return to get these assignments.  If you know you are going to be out of school, please let me know so I can prepare you in advance.

    Extra Help:
    I am available for extra help before and after school by appointment in the English Office. Email me at jraniere@csh.k12.ny.us, or see me after class to make an appointment. 

    Test Days:
    English tests can be given on 3 and/or 6 days or a different appropriate day as determined by the TEAM teachers.
