  • Current Unit of Study: ELA 6 

    Launching Workshop: The one truly consistent finding in reading research is that reading a lot matters. Reading widely, voraciously, and independently is the primary action that can spark meaningful and lifelong learning. We start with this unit to establish reading routines in our classroom.

  • Current Unit of Study: ELA 7 

    Investigating Characterization: Students will utilize the class read aloud Freak the Mighty to dive deeper into how the author uses their craft to develop characterization. Looking closely at characterization allows the readers to gain a better understanding of why characters act the way they do. Readers who analyze and understand characters are able to see how characterization helps develop both the conflict and the theme of a story.
