Mr. Michael Mezzancello

Hello and welcome. My name is Mr. Michael Mezzancello and I am your child's ELA teacher this year. 

All of my work is posted to Microsoft Teams; your child has been using this platform to the best of their ability for around 2 years, though confusion is bound to happen at times. Therefore, it is important that when your child needs assitance, they reach out to me and their other teachers.

I am here to support all of my students to ensure they continue to refine and develop their skills in ELA. Please contact me with any questions. All contact information is provided under the Contact Information tab. 

Best regards,

Mr. Michael Mezzancello

  • Marking Period 3 Expectations

    Posted by MICHAEL MEZZANCELLO on 1/14/2021

    7th Grade has begun their unit on "screen time" and the development of the human brain. Students will engage in a research-based unit filled with scientific readings that will help students not only learn about the science behind brain development, but develop their own claims about screen time's affect on our brains. 

    8th Grade has begun their unit on where our food in America comes from. They have begun reading "The Omnivore's Dilemma," an informational book that will reveal the truth of where our food comes from and how it gets to our plates. Students will eventually consider which of the four food chains would best support Americans through the research conducted this unit.

    7th Grade completed their unit on Identity. They analyzed two characters in a play and traced how they develop. Students ended their study by examining how the main character in the play became an independent woman.


    8th Grade completed their unit on character interactions. They studied Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and carefully analyzed how the characters interact with one another in order to discover themes of the play. They concluded their study by creating character studies.
