Middle School Language Arts

In February, we began our study of Science Fiction, reading Nancy Farmer’s The House of the Scorpion.  We have talked about issues of science, ethics, the future, and what sets the genre of sci-fi apart from realistic fiction and fantasy.  Additionally, students have been writing around or in the genre of science fiction, focusing their monthly writing assignments on topics or issues within the book, or exploring the genre of science fiction.

In March, we are shifting to nonfiction, studying biography and starting on our multigenre projects, which we will work on until curriculum celebration in May.
