Course Description:

This course is a combination of language arts and literatureThe literacy skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, comprehending, and thinking are taught. Students gain practice in grammar, punctuation, and writing skills. Assignments include all writing modes: persuasive, narrative, expository, and descriptive. The writing process includes ideas and content, organization, sentence fluency and voice. In literature we read classic and contemporary literature, including short stories, dramas, and nonfiction. Personal connections, interpretations and responses to literature are made to show understanding of the text. Vocabulary instruction and growth is emphasized throughout the year.  Independent reading will be expected continually, with assignments being given on a regular basis.  Learning to work collaboratively is essential, so group/partners work will be a routine occurrence.
