Course Description:

Designed to inspire, and  arranged to prepare, this course focuses on, the changing role of a middle school English course. First semester, our students will study the mechanics of the English language and the skills needed for effective compositions. Second semester they will explore and discuss the selected  mixture of novels, non-fiction, short stories, and poems.

The weekly writing assignments are adaptable to engage both the avid and the reluctant reader. This course will use Google Classroom and parent involvement is about 10 minutes a day. Parents are expected to check that their student is conforming to the requirements of each assignment and that the work has been completed. Students should plan to spend about 30 minutes a day (4 times a week) on their coursework.
