Middle School Language Arts

In our Language Arts program, student readers study a wide range of literature from many periods in many genres to comprehend, appreciate, analyze, and evaluate text.

Student writers learn organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions and presentation through the process of prewriting, drafting and revising. Students learn how to conduct research using primary sources, how to write narratives that are reflective and theme-based, and how to write argument essays that use counterargument to clarify a position.
