Course Description

The purpose of this course is to increase reading fluency and endurance through advanced integrated experiences in the language arts. This course incorporates reading and analysis of literary and informational selections to develop critical and close reading skills. At the end of 6th grade students are expected to read and comprehend texts in the 6-8 grade complexity band proficiently and read texts at the high end of the band with support.

Honors and Advanced Level Course Note: Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work. Through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted, students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning. 

Important Note: Reading and writing courses should not be used in place of English language arts courses; reading and writing courses are intended to be used to supplement further study in English language arts. 

General Notes: The content should include, but not be limited to, the following: 
  • demonstrating successful reading of argument, including recognizing bias and supporting details; 
  • demonstrating successful reading of fact and opinion, including recognizing inferences and main ideas; 
  • demonstrating successful reading of high-quality literature, including the use of text craft and literary effects to develop theme and tone; 
  • demonstrating knowledge of a variety of organizational patterns and their relationships in the comprehension of text, including recognizing purpose and tone of informational reading; 
  • demonstrating successful understanding of academic vocabulary and vocabulary in context; 
  • integrating reading and writing, including extensive written responses to print and digital text; 
  • using effective listening, speaking, and viewing strategies with emphasis on the use of evidence to support or refute a claim in multimedia presentations, class discussions, and extended text discussions; 
  • collaborating extensively amongst peers.
