• Hello, and welcome to Freshman English and Read 180. Your child will be immersing themselves into a game designed classroom through a series of Superhuman events. Each day your student will be challenged to recall information from prior years, produce work that demonstrates an understanding of the objectives that are new, and apply those objectives to various projects we will be doing within our class. 

    Let's talk about what a day in ELA/Read 180 will look like:

    • As a class, we will then participate in what is called "Missions". The students engage in what we are doing and also have a little fun while practicing being personable with the people around us. 
    • complete Bellwork
    • As the lesson starts I will have them answer a few questions to check for understanding. I will do this with either a quick think-pair-share method or a method I use called Teams. 
    • As the lesson ends, students will work in either small groups or individually to complete tasks based on that day's instruction. 

    And that's it. A normal day in Mr. Miller's English class. Of course, there are a lot more things we will do, but I will have to leave that up to you to find out from them.

    Our curriculum this year was created by the high school team and will be supplemented with CommonLit, Collections, No Red Ink, EssayPop, and more.

    I welcome any questions to my Email: Ian.miller@dvusd.org and will reply within 24hrs. Thank you for taking the time to view my page have a good day!
