Reading: My goal is to instill a love for reading in all my students, as well as work on comprehension. During reading, we will work on Cold Read activities.  This tests students ability to think deeply and use evidence from a story to answer questions.  This will take place frequently and all the answers can be found within the story, this is not a "study" type activity. 

Writing We will work on Narrative, Persuasive, Informational and Text dependent writing. Writing is a process that never truly ends, so grades will be taken through writing strategy practices completed in class. 

Social Studies: We will work on content right after the Civil War through present day events. Students' will take small quizzes and then one large unit assessment for each Social Studies unit.
