Language Arts 8

Middle School Subject
Language Arts

Language Arts curriculum encompasses all aspects of reading, writing, speaking, and listening through a gradual release and workshop model.  Students will complete formal papers in narrative, informative (compare and contrast), and argumentative genres using the writing process.  Students engage in Shared Inquiry discussions, partake in differentiated literature circles, learn roots and affixes in our Words Their Way vocabulary program.  Student’s reading will be monitored.  Students will learn how to think critically and practice critical thinking on a daily basis through reading various tests and genres of fiction, nonfiction, narrative, poetry and drama.  Many interdisciplinary connections are made with other content areas.
