addition to your regular English class, ELA Lab meets for one hour in the
four-day rotation. With the support of Mrs. Gerwitz, the school librarian,
we will work closely with you throughout the year to build a strong foundation
in research skills that directly support the Common Core State Standards.
You will conduct short research projects focused on gathering information from
print and digital sources, assessing the credibility of sources, putting
information into your own words (paraphrasing) or quoting to avoid plagiarism,
and citing sources.
Materials needed for class: one folder which will be provided for you. It will be kept in our classroom.
