Reading & Language ArtsSeventh & Eighth Grade Reading & Language ArtsInstructor: Mrs. Sophia DeSilvaAt RMS reading and language art classes are divided into two classes. This was done to help focus on the skills needed for the state assessments taken in the spring. In class we focus on three to four novels per grade level. Focus is placed on literary elements (plot, conflict, setting) and literary devices (simile, metaphor, idiom) while reading these novels. Study Island, formative tests and daily assignments help us to prepare for the standards that are to be tested. Last nine weeks we move into our literature series focusing of different genres of literature.Sixth & Seventh Grade Reading & Language ArtsInstructor: Mrs. Ashlyn Krei
Thank you for visiting the Language Arts Department! We hope this document will give you (the student and parent) some valuable information to help ensure everyone’s success language arts.
In any profession a person may choose, one thing is certain; we must be able to communicate. Therefore, it is the intent of the language arts department to help prepare students in becoming better communicators. This is no small task and will be attacked in several manners. We will study the different modes of writing and practice each one extensively using the six traits of writing. We’ll continue to fine tune our skills in grammar, usage and the mechanics of writing. Our goal is to help each student become a better communicator in both the written and spoken mode.
We do believe every child has the ability to learn. However, we realize that children do learn in different ways and at different levels. It is our personal goal to motivate each child to reach his or her potential in the classroom.
