Gamification adds fun to intensive writing unit.
In Middle School English, each student will develop a strong foundation in English through extensive experience with writing, speaking, and reading.
In writing, we stress process, revision, and organization in order to foster strong writing skills and analytical thinking. Students express their ideas orally through discussion and presentations; they also come to value the exchange of ideas produced by discussion. We practice literary analysis on a variety of texts that offer young adolescents a chance to encounter literature that serves as windows and mirrors for their various identities. Finally, it is our hope that through writing, speaking, and reading, students will begin a process of self-exploration and discovery that will guide them on their journey through Middle School.
