Welcome to my Website!

I was born in Salem, MA, received a BS from Boston University in Communication, a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from San Francisco State, and a Single Subject Teaching Credential in English from University of San Francisco.  I have also received a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from University of San Francisco.  I love teaching, and that is good; I have been teaching for 25 years.  I strive to achieve structured creativity  for my students and myself in all of my classes, the kind of creativity that brings joy to the heart and skills to the work place.  We weave together curriculum that builds skills in reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar, and conversation.  My curriculum is project based, highly cooperative, very loud, and based on as many authentic experiences as I can produce.  These authentic experiences involve many field trips and participation in school activities.  My classes must be fun, happy and exciting, as I spend so much time there.  

 

I teach 9th Grade English, 10th Grade English, and British and European Literature, all to English Language Learners (ELL).  All of my students are recent immigrants.  My classes involve a high degree of instruction in the different genres of expository writing as well as literature.  Consequently, all classes involve some reading of expository writing, information writing, as a model for our writing instruction and practice.  The expository reading often centers around the literature we are reading, creating a deeper understanding of that literature.  Historical context, personality analysis, role playing, and analyzing choices made by characters help us to empathize with an author's vision.  Further, my 9th and 10th Grade English classes are taught in 2 hour blocks.  Each 2 hour block has the same students, and we cover both 9th and 10th Grade English during that time.  This is called blocking and has proven highly successful in skills development, alleviation of cultural shock, and high test scores at Lincoln High School.  If you have any questions regarding my classes that this website does not cover, please email me at irvingg@sfusd.edu.

Class Expectations

1.  Students must arrive on time.  Most jobs will fire you for being late 3 times.

2.  Homework and assignments must be on time.  Late assignments will lose 1 letter grade for every late day.  At a job, late work will cause coworkers to lose respect for you.

3.  Students must speak and participate everyday.  Quiet time is after class.  High grades go to people that speak a lot.  People will have no idea how smart you are if you refuse to speak.

4.  All communication must be respectful and kind.  These are requirements in almost all work places.  

5.  My students do not cheat.  People that cheat get F's.  They also get U's.  There is no negotiation possible.  You get fired from jobs when you cheat.

6.  Classes that comply with the above expectations deserve great parties and the best field trips I can produce.

7.  Students that work hard must get complements and encouragement.

Regarding Homework

Homework is a way of completing things we have started in class.  Most assignments have been started in class, and some assignments are almost completed before the students leave class.  Certainly, a way to reduce homework is to waste no time while working in groups during class time.  Homework is always a way to support our many classroom learning goals.  It is sometimes fun too.
