This is an intro handout that outlines the course in a way that's easy for students to understand.
This course is REALLY different from their others, and so I want students to understand this right off the bat, during the first week.
It goes through the two bins (reading/writing), the portfolio, the levels of achievement chart (straight from the curriculum guidelines).
There's also a bonus page with the WRITING PROCESS chart on it...which really helps them see what we work on throughout the course.
Hope it helps!
