What is middle school language arts?
A balanced literacy instructional approach is continued in Middle School at Trinity through reading and writing units of study. In language arts, students are intentionally taught to read, write, solve, and think in authentic genres for real purposes and audiences. In reading, students study reading skills & strategies and genre conventions through individual and shared reading. In writing, students focus on narrative, informational, and argumentative writing and investigate grammar and mechanics in the context of language in order to be able to communicate effectively in the world. Written assignments and grammar assessments are given regularly.
