In grammar this year students will improve their communication skills with the focus on the six traits of writing. I am also very excited about the assortment of literature we will be reading. We will be using the McDougal Littell literature series as well as implementing several novel units. Students are encouraged to share their thoughts and learn to appreciate the opinions of others. From the variety of reading selections, students will learn to analyze literature and to appreciate new perspectives and cultures.
