Language Arts is a set of COMMUNICATION TOOLS. It is not a typical subject.
In our class, we examine issues in current events and content from other classes (SEL, Social Studies, Science, and even Math.)
We learn how to communicate using WRITING and SPEAKING.
We learn how to receive information using LISTENING and READING.
Please note that our assignments are multi-step and usually take many days to complete. After they have been submitted to me, stories and essays take a minimum of 10 minutes each to grade. When there are 140+ students on our team, this means it takes over 23 hours to grade one story assignment. Expect that the grade for a story or essay will be posted to the online grade portal approximately 10 days to 2 weeks after submission.
