2 Semesters 1 Credit Fulfills: English

Middle school language arts courses are developed with the foundation of core curriculum materials from Amplify ELA.  Amplify ELA is an on-line platform constructed to allow students to work independently, with small groups, and as a whole class to read, analyze, discuss and write.   Students will read and understand complex texts, read text passages closely, interpret what they find, discuss their thinking with peers, and develop their ideas in writing.  Over the course of each year, students will be exposed to full texts and multiple fiction and non-fiction text excerpts on a variety of topics. Within the study of these texts, students will also develop their skills in the areas of narrative, argument, and informative writing. Students will experience learning in all standard areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening.  Throughout the course, students will receive feedback and support that develops their skills and supports their development of critical thinking skills.
