Language Arts

  • English Language Arts in middle school grades (6-8) are using a new curriculum this year entitled "Collections."  In this program, strategies in reading both fiction and nonfiction are designed to aid students in developing their abilities toward analyzing complex texts, determining evidence, reasoning critically, and communicating thoughtfully-the must-have skills for college and career.  Students use their grade-level Collections textbooks, Close Readers, and Assessment booklets as well as a blended digital and variety of interactive writing lessons to direct their learning processes and challenge their skills in both reading and writing.
