Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!

I hope all my students (and their parents) have had as fantastic a summer as I have had - full of fun, exciting experiences, great books, and great company! I'm looking forward to another awesome year here at CES - my third year working with our tremendous community of young writers. This year, I will also be teaching 6th grade Social Studies, as well as resuming my role as the adviser of the middle school's Student Council. Student Council meetings are held on Wednesdays at 7:30 AM in Room 307. Check back this page for updates on what we are working on in class, and other important stuff!

Week of 10/15 - 19:

This week, students in sixth grade will be continuing to work on revising and editing their personal narratives. Seventh graders will have an opportunity to share their newspaper projects early in the week; they will then be starting a unit on research-based argument writing. Students in eighth grade will be wrapping up their free writing pieces and submitting them to me by the end of the week, along with a rubric that will determine how they will be graded on these pieces.

In Social Studies, students will be continuing to work with their groups to research an amendment to the Constitution and decide how to present their findings to their classmates. These presentations will most likely take place early next week.

Reminder: Current Events assignment due every Friday @ 1:15 PM
