Welcome to the Language Arts Department!

    In students' English/Language Arts class, students are involved in a variety of learning structures including:

    • Teacher Table: Direct standards-based instruction using mixed literature and non-fiction texts in small group.

    • Small Group writing instruction to include expository/informative and argumentative writing with necessary revision skills. 

    • Peer-to-peer: Collaborative partner/group work utilizing newly learned reading skills in combination with speaking and listening skills. Includes a mixture of high-interest articles, novel study, and project-based learning. 

    • Technology/independent: Independent practice spiraling all previously taught skills.
