Language Arts

Language Arts is designed to increase the middle school student's reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. While reading fiction, nonfiction and poetry connected to central themes, each student will be learning and utilizing the writing process by writing journal entries, personal and fictional narratives, original and sophisticated poetry, literary analyses, as well as descriptive and persuasive essays. Through the writing process, students will receive individualized instruction in writing elements such as style, purpose, theme, metaphor, symbolism, paragraphing, grammar usage, spelling and punctuation.
