Middle School Language Arts News: November 2013
As the MEAP concluded and we got things back to normal, we also wrapped up our unit on vignette writing and The House on Mango Street. We’ve already started our next unit of study, historical fiction, led by Laura, our student teacher. Students are in book groups with novels about the Revolutionary War, and they are having daily discussions about their reading and the genre. They are also starting the planning process of writing historical fiction, based on a historical event of their choosing. Thanks again to all of the families who offered to purchase their child’s book for this unit. It was a great help in saving the school money!
