This year, I co-teach with Mrs. Mimnaugh for an ELA block. Throughout the year we will be focusing on Teacher's College Reading and Writing workshop. We will explore a variety of genres: narratives, non-fiction, social issues, literary essays, teen activism, fantasy, and poetry. The children will learn to become independent readers and writers for a authentic purpose.
In addition, I am a 6th, 7th and 8th grade AIS teacher. I work with the students focusing on reading and writing skills. In class, we focus on fluency and comprehension strategies. Throughout the year, the students will learn writing strategies. But above all, the goal is for the students to develop a love for reading and writing.
