Mrs. Heather Dohse
Welcome to Honors 8th grade ELAR!
I am excited to be your student's teacher this year! I am starting my 17th year of teaching, all with NCISD. I hold a Bachlors of Scinece from Goldey Beacom College (Wilmington, DE) in Business Administration and Marketing. I am married with two girls, two dogs, and 4 cats!
This class will be continuing the challenges of Honors course work which allows for the student to be learning at a faster pace with compacted curriculum. The material is often one to two years above grade level, with a focus on close reading, finding and explaining textual evidence, and the choice and structure of language an author chooses to convey their message to the reader.
This course is to better prepare your student to move in to high school level Honors classes, which are also taught one to two grade levels ahead. Honors classes move into college level work in the later high school years.
1st/6th period: 8:30-9:50
Tuesday mornings 7:50-8:20
If a student is not avaiable at that time, they can make arraignments ahead of time with me to meet a different morning or afternoon.
