Language Arts

Be ready to enter the Writing Zone this year!

 According to Donald Graves, as quoted in Teaching Adolescent Writers by Kelly Gallagher, "If kids don't write more than three times a week, they're dead." There are so many ways for students to spend time writing! In language arts class, we will respond to prompts, and students will create a list of the "territories" that they can write about. 

Your list of "territories" can include:

  • anyone who is important to you
  • anything you like to do
  • anything you consider yourself to be an "expert" in
  • anywhere you have visited
  • your favorite foods
  • your favorite places
  • anything else you'd like to write about! 

We will use your "territory" lists quite often and you can add to them at any time!
