New ELA Curriclum in Middle School

Sixth and Seventh grade students just completed the first section of their new curriculum, culminated with the writing of a nonfiction narrative essay!

Sixth grade answered the following prompt: “When did you have to use your imagination to find another way to do something?” The seventh grade answered the prompt: “What unexpected event shows how a person can influence someone from a different generation?”

Our scholars have now transitioned into small group learning where they are working in groups of three or four to complete tasks associated with essential questions that are driving our learning.

As the second quarter continues, students will also create media presentations and select online texts to read and analyze that support our essential questions: “What are some of the challenges and triumphs of growing up?” (6th) and “What can one generation learn from another?” (7th)
