    Welcome to Mrs. Schettler's Strategic Writing.   This course is designed to enrich students' writing skills in preparation for standardized tests such as PSAT, SAT, ACT, and EOC.  Classes are limited in size, so students enjoy the opportunity to work closely with both their peers and their teacher in a writing workshop setting.  The course is ideal for any student who could easily excel in writing given an opportunity to focus on writing as a course.  Compositions include personal narratives, short stories, expository, analytical, and persuasive; in addition, students will also have a chance to develop their creative ideas through journaling, quick-writes, round-robin stories, and other engaging activities.

     

    Classroom Management Plan:
       Classroom management is an agreement between the teacher and students that within the instructional time a pleasing, stimulating, inquisitive and very friendly educational exchange can occur.  We have as a class a responsibility to ourselves and each other to maximize the learning.  Therefore my expectations are high and rules are basic: Be on Time!  Be prepared! Be polite and respectful to all!  It will be a full year comprised of experiences, successes, growth and happiness. 
    ( For the full text of this plan please refer to Helpful Documents entitled Classroom Management Plan).
