ELA-Reading   

ELA

 

In Depth Novel Studies  This is a chance to model reading strategies and to hold whole class discussions on a variety of texts.  Students will frequently break into small groups as they explore a wide range of topics and work to deepen their comprehension of a text.  Additionally, students will be required to complete independent reading assignments on a regular basis.


Writing  Writing is embedded within the curriculum.  Students are writing on a regular basis in response to their reading.  We use a variety of model texts that students have an opportunity to analyze and then produce similar writing using their own thinking.


SSR (Sustained Silent Reading) - This is the students' opportunity to practice reading strategies and for me to meet with students individually to hear them read & to discuss their books.
