Tara Thiesmeyer

Ms. Tara T. Thiesmeyer

Office Hours: Mon., Wed., Fri. 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (by e-mail or we can make an appointment for a phone call)
I will answer any e-mails I receive at any other time within 24 hours.

For assignments, see our Google Classroom page, and be sure to sign up for Remind (instructions for which are on the Google Classroom page).  If you have any trouble signing up or accessing either program, please contact me by e-mail.

Fortunately, English Language Arts is a subject you can study on your own by reading, reading, and more reading.  I also encourage you to write, any type of writing in any format on any subject.  If you become a life-long reader and writer, then no disruption to your traditional schooling will prevent you from becoming a highly-literate, well-informed individual.  Even talking is a useful tool to develop your thinking skills, if you discuss what you have read or written with others.

To assist with that, I will be assigning enrichment activities specifically focused on the state standards for this class.  These can help raise your third quarter grades, if you complete them.  Some will use the activities available on the Pearson Realize site accessible from your Norco page, others will be assignments for you to do in Google Classroom itself.  I will also be suggesting other ways for you to expand your literary knowledge with book lists, video links, movies, or other websites.  These will be voluntary and will only be worth points if I attach an activity to them for you to complete.  For all the writing assignments, I will give you as much feedback as I can on your individual work, so those of you who choose to do it will get the most out of it.
