Meet Your Teacher!

Welcome

Schoology

Students at DCS now have access to the new DCSD learning management system, Schoology, at http://desotoms.schoology.com.

Students with login issues should put in a help ticket at http://www.dcsdms.org/tickets with the subject line of "Schoology Help Needed" and the tech department will get back to you as soon as possible.

What are we working on?
In this second nine weeks, we will be working on analyzing point of view and multiple accounts on the same topic. We will also analyze the structure of poems, drama, and prose, and comparing and contrasting text structure. Students will analyze diverse media and their contribution to author's meaning, tone, and message, as well as, interpret text features in informational text for their contribution to text and multimedia. Finally, students will explain author's use of evidence to support their points, integrate information from several texts, and compare and contrast similar themes in the same genre. All writing formats will be reviewed along with the use of figurative language and context clues.
