Sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students are invited to join us for a Language Arts course aligned with the California Content Standards.

Wednesdays 11:30-1:30

Core Language Arts for 6-7th graders with Kelsey

Intermediate Language Arts for 7-8th graders with Jay

This course emphasizes the fundamental language skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, thinking, viewing, and presenting. Vocabulary and grammar skills training will be integrated throughout the school year. We will study various literary genres: short stories, poetry, novel, drama, and non-fiction. A major goal for the course is the development of reading and writing skills. Three communication standards will be addressed throughout each unit: narrative, persuasive and expository.  Interactive activities include readers' theatre, class debates, beach ball discussions, class gameshows, and ELA escape rooms!
