English Language Arts

Leaves of Grass

My sixth-eighth grade special needs English Language Curriculum focuses on comprehension, graphic organizing, vocabulary, grammar development, and writing. The students will improve their skills by working individually and in cooperative groups with a wide array of fiction and non-fiction sources. We will integrate history and the sciences in magazine articles and biographies. We will work on improving our vocabulary skills and develop the writing process for a variety of purposes. Lastly, we will prepare the students for the New York State Examination in English Language Arts.
