Description:

English Language Arts is a combination of reading and writing.

Throughout the year, students will be using various reading strategies such as context clues, comparison/contrast, inferencing, skim/scan, vocabulary building, and a LTF idea of annotation to enhance their comprehension skills and abilities. It's important that students not only enhance their reading skills, but also improve their understanding skills as well. The students will be issued a Pearson Literature text book and writing book to use as needed throughout the school year. 

Throughout the year, students will be using the writing process in order to improve their writing abilities. The process includes five steps:

1. Brainstorming: students quickly write down a few brief ideas about a topic they are going to write about.
2. Pre-write: students freely write in complete sentences and paragraphs about the topic they are going to write about.
3. Revising: students review comments made by the teacher in order to improve their writing.
4. Editing: students rewrite their paper making corrections based on the teacher's suggestions to the writing.
5. Publishing: students "polish" the final draft and turn it in to the teacher for the final assessment.

Also, the eight parts of speech will often be reviewed in order to improve student's writing skills. It's important that the students learn how to use these parts of speech in order to make their writings more entertaining and interesting. By doing so, they will be able to use "rich" vocabulary and write complex sentences which will greatly enhance their writing abilities.
