LANGUAGE ARTS CURRICULUM

Language Arts Curriculum

The middle school language curriculum is divided into three different areas. The level of difficulty increases as they progress from 6th through 8th grade.

Literature – This encompasses reading novels, sections of novels, and short stories.  We read a variety of genres in class from informational to fictional.  Students also read books of their choice independently and are assigned reports.

Language –  This entails punctuation, grammar, and writing papers.  Papers vary by grade but are not limited to research papers, book reports, dialogues, and essays.

Vocabulary- This part involves learning new vocabulary words, spelling, and Greek and Latin roots.
