Just as reading is integrated with other subject areas, so is writing and language. Students will “write across the curriculum” as they learn to use the five steps of processing writing: prewriting, writing, revising, editing, and publishing. Many types of writing, such as personal letters, emails, summaries, memoirs, biographies, poetry, and reports, will be explored. Mechanics will be taught through mini-lessons based on the students’ needs. Students will complete DOL (Daily Oral Language) activities each morning and have a weekly quiz on Friday. DOL begins on the first day.
