Mr. Fowler

Welcome to the Countdown to the SOL Season!


 The next two weeks we will utilize Google Classroom and Commonlit.org to analyze poetry. They will write a synthesis essay that uses evidence from multiple texts to answer the essential question. Students will also be developing persuasive essays.

SKILLS TAUGHT & REINFORCED

  • Synthesizing information across multiple texts
  • Comparing and contrasting ideas across genres
  • Writing a synthesis essay
  • Citing evidence from the text to support claims
  • Writing fluid explanations


Students will also be preparing for their upcoming 3rd Nine Weeks Benchmark test that will cover material discussed at this point in the year.


I will also use the calendar on this page to post assignments and upcoming due dates. Folders with different resources and assignments will be included on this page, so parents and students can print copies of anything you're missing or might have lost.         


My schedule this year is:
1 A/B  -  core English 7
2 A/B  -  English 8 SC
3 A/B  -  core English 8
4 A/B  - planning - If I need to call/return a call during the day, it will be during my 4th block planning time.

All of my students (except for a couple who don't have a google address for the school yet) have been invited to join my Google classroom.

Students can assess resource books, vocabulary list, and homework assignments through the Google classroom at all times.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at school by phone or email. The school phone number is 540-586-7735, and my direct email address is: derek.fowler@bedford.k12.va.us.
