Welcome to Language Arts class! I am so excited to get this year rolling!!! The purpose of this class is to develop the reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and critical thinking skills so necessary for your academic, professional, and personal success. During this school year, we will focus on literature study, vocabulary development, writing, grammar, and research/reference skills. We will explore a range of genres—fiction and nonfiction—from both a reading and writing standpoint. I'm looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you and to support your academic journey in every way possible!!!
