Middle School Language Arts News: November 2012
We have been continuing our study of short fiction in middle school language arts. We have read classics such as “The Necklace,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and “The Tell Tale Heart.” On November 9th, we went to see a theatre group perform these short stories, bringing our readings to life! In the writing department, students have been trying their hands at creating fiction. It has been interesting watching them craft characters, and putting these new people through different conflicts. Their problems are becoming sophisticated, and they are really growing as writers. As winter approaches, we will attempt to escape reality by studying the genre of fantasy fiction! Hopefully these fantastic images will keep us warm as the weather turns cold.
