English/Language Arts:

During reading instruction students will read from a variety of sources and genres both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and classic. Students will be asked to communicate understanding and draw conclusions about what they read while putting the work into a historical world context.

The emphasis in writing is to enhance a student’s ability to accurately communicate his or her ideas and feelings to others. To that end, writing encompasses organization, spelling, grammar, and fluency within a piece of written work.   Students will primarily focus on writing as a tool to support their own opinions, using specific details and content area vocabulary.
