Middle School Language Arts News: April 2012

What an exciting time it’s been in the middle school language arts classes!  We have been reading The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer as a whole class, and have had some great discussions about fair treatment, discrimination, ethics in science, and the overarching theme of good versus evil.  Ask a middle schooler about their new favorite science fiction novel!

While we have been reading this great piece of fiction, we have begun writing nonfiction.  Each student has chosen an issue that matters to them and have started doing research on the topic.  When we return from break, we will begin drafting persuasive essays.  Look for logical, well crafted arguments in your middle schooler’s writer’s notebook!
