  • English/Language Arts

    Grades: 6, 7, 8

    The middle school runs as a 6-8th grade inclusive looping team.  Coursework is modified to the ability of the students in the class. Students are supported with a special educator, teacher aides and small class sizes.  Reading and writing skills are the focus and become more complex as students become more independent throughout the year.  In language arts, students will become familiar with the writing process.   Students will develop their oral language, grammar, listening, study, dictionary, and reading and comprehension skills.  Students will use a critical eye to evaluate literature and their own writing.  While reading and writing, they will focus on terminology, criticism, intent and style/technique.   Thematic units are used throughout the year to integrate skills or subject areas.
