Hi, I'm Taylor Isom, and I'm thrilled to be teaching English 6 this year. This is my third year at Breckinridge. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!

Tuesday and Wednesday we'll be reading a fiction piece, "The Chenoo," as well as a nonfiction piece, "The Pasmaquoddy." We'll be working on supporting details and inferencing among other skills.
Thursday and Friday we'll be reading poetry ("On Turning Ten" and "Life Doesn't Frighten Me") while focusing on figurative language and inferencing (particularly regarding the speaker).

We will work on writing complete sentences as we answer questions as well as identifying main idea and supporting details.

I will send home homework on Tuesdays and collect it on Thursdays beginning January 23rd. We will go over it in class on Thursdays after it is collected. 

I will tutor during the school day during seventh and eighth period certain days of the week. More information to come. In addition to the students I pull, students are always welcome to ask to come for tutoring as long as they work it out with their elective teachers.
