Futurelink Newsletter { July 2013} 1) Explaining Writing Final Draft Scores – Students’ essays are graded using a six-traits writing rubric. Each essay is evaluated on a scale of 1 to 6 for each of the six traits: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions. Students’ final draft scores represent the calculated average of the six scores. • • • • • •

2) Check Your Student’s Grades Online – Futurelink records students’ grades online using JupiterGrades.com. Simply log in to see if your student is staying on task, completing his or her classwork, and doing well on tests. Use your parent account to access your student’s current grades as well as any past report cards. Your login information is attached. We input new grades as we receive them, so check back frequently. 3) Silent Reading/Accelerated Reader – It’s proven: access to books leads to more reading. And more reading leads to better reading, writing, spelling, grammar, and a larger vocabulary. Students who read just four books over the summer can prevent what is called the “summer slide,” where students lose educational ground because they may not be as stimulated as they are during the school year. Over the summer, students can lose up to 25 percent of their reading level! At Futurelink, we will not allow this to happen! Since the beginning of summer, our students have read over 400 books! Futurelink students read 30 minutes a day during silent reading and throughout the day after they have completed their packet work. Students can choose from hundreds of popular fiction books available in our school library. We assess students’ reading proficiency and progress using Accelerated Reader (AR) quizzes. AR also allows parents to stay involved. From home, parents are able to review their child’s AR quiz results; view the number of books and words their child has read; and help their child strengthen vocabulary skills.

Futurelink Newsletter 七月份月報 各位家長: 今年暑期班,我們提供給學生很嚴格的「英文寫作課」和「閱讀 能力加強班」。下面將為您解釋這兩門課程進行的細節。

七月份月報

1)學生如何得到寫作成績?

• 評定寫作成績的方法 • 上網查詢您孩子的成績 • 加速進步閱讀課程考試

我們採用美國教育界最普遍應用的「寫作六大重點規範」(sixtraits writing rubric)做為評定寫作成績的方法。這六大重點包 括:想法,組織,感情的傳達,文字的選擇,句子的流暢,和文 法。學生的最後成績以各六大重點的一到六分加起來而定。一分 代表「初級」,二分代表「成形」,三分代表「進展中」,四分 代表「具有能力」,五分代表「經驗成熟」 六分代表「特優表 現」。

2)上網查詢您孩子的成績: 我們隨時把學生的成績輸入電腦資料庫,您可上網看到您孩子的 學習情況與成果。教您如何登入的資料可在連結上找到。 3)「安靜閲讀」時段與「加速進步閱讀課程考試」:在本校, 我們規定每天一點到一點半,或當課業做好時任何空檔時間,學 生必須自行安靜閱讀。在我們的圖書館裡,我們購買了數百本的 「加速進步閱讀課程考試」系列書籍,包括小說與非小說,給全 校學生隨時取閱。讀完書後,他們要上我們的電腦考試,測驗其 理解程度。您可上網查孩子的成績,也可看到書目,了解孩子讀 了那些書籍,知道他們的閱讀程度。如何登入這個網站,請參閱 我們的聯結。 根據專家統計,大部份學生在漫長的暑期後,閱讀能力退步百分 之二十五。這個可怕的情形,絶不會在前瞻發生。我們最明白如 何增強學生的閱讀能力,他們必須多讀,多認字,了解詞彙的意 思,如何使用文字等等。我們都知道閲讀能力是萬門學科的基 礎,在前瞻,我們最大的努力是訓練學生成長為有思考能力,可 以表達意見的好學生。暑假三個星期,我們的學生已經讀了400 本書!
