3/28/20 - During these unprecedented times, the most important thing we can do is stay safe and calm. Practice any safety precautions you've learned. The most current information I send will be through Google Classroom. Please check there for updates. You can email me as well. I miss you.


 Quarter 3: January 27-April 3

Core classes are analyzing and comparing a novel passage from A Jar of Dreams to the poem Somewhere Among. They have used their reading strategies to answer multiple choice questions and are writing an essay comparing the central ideas of the two pieces using the R.A.C.E. strategy.

Extension classes are reading and analyzing longer texts, using the R.A.C.E. strategy for open responses, summarizing longer passages and doing research based projects surrounding what was read in class.

Check to be sure your student is doing their homework. It is handed out and reviewed Monday, and is due on Friday.

My after school day is Tuesday. Feel free to contact me at ntierney@pittsfield.net with any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
