This year students will continue to build reading, writing, speaking, listening and language skills. Students will be exposed to a variety of materials of varying levels of difficulty in order to promote college and career readiness. Students will analyze both non fiction and fiction text through close reading, while continuing to build a foundation for proficiency in the English language. Students will write a variety of pieces which will include a narrative memior, an argumentative research essay, a literary analysis, and poetry.
In this class we will use a multitude of approaches to promote student growth, including whole group, small group and individiual teaching techniques.
Each lesson will align to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards.
