Course Description
There are two purposes for this class: to help each student develop his or her language skills and to help each student with his or her interpersonal skills. Embedded in the curriculum are the standards required by the state of Minnesota. The students will use a variety of materials to engage in a variety of activities, projects, and educational setting that facilitate the understanding of language arts strands (writing, reading, speaking, listening, viewing, and representing). All students will be expected to complete weekly grammar exercises, weekly vocabulary building exercises, literature units in both fiction and nonfiction, and a full spectrum of writing assignments.
