Hello SCA Families! Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. Although many aspects of school look different this year, many things will remain the same such as our strong community of support, rigorous education, and positive energy in seeing our classmates and teachers. I look forward to teaching the 7th and 8th grade students and all the fun and excitement English class can bring by challenging students to express themselves through written concepts.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me via egordon@scaoaklawn.org.

Please note: all class notes, assignments, rubrics, and directions are posted on Google Classroom. If your child is absent for either a short or extended period of time, it is their responsibility to check Google Classroom for assignments.

Throughout the year, students will develop writing styles at a mastery level. Students will write routinely and wit rigor. They will be expected to write many different genres of writing such as: expository, narrative, persuasive, and descriptive. MLA style will be taught and used for all writing assignments. Students will be expected to complete a major writing assignment every month.
