    Literature:  Fiction & Nonfiction selections will be paired thematically throughout the year adding complimenting genres of prose.  Most literature tests will be 50 points.  Students are encouraged to reread assigned selections from the StudySync Workbook or online at least 2-3 times before a test is given.

    Vocabulary Roots:  We will cover 8 lessons during each Semester 1 & 2.  Tests are cumulative and review all words given with each lesson. The list of Vocabulary Root Words is available under "Resources".

    Spelling/Grammar/Writing:

    Spelling Lessons will be given weekly with a test after every other lesson.  Honors classes will also have a major test after every 4 lessons.

    All elements of writing using proper English conventions will be addressed throughout the year.  Students will be given class time for most writing assignments, but students can expect to edit & revise during computer class time or independently at home.  All final drafts of essays and projects assigned may be printed at the KMS library free of charge.  Students should complete these assignments on their Google docs accounts.

    Each week student activities will vary based on the school calendar of events.  In class, students will memorize and present poems on a weekly basis.  Service activities at KMS will be developed and enhanced with these student leaders.

    Leadership students take the responsibility of reading the KMS Daily Bulletin each morning.  Our veteran students will begin training those interested new Leadership students to assist with this endeavor.
