Middle School English
Middle School -
The middle school English department actively engages our students in the art of reading and writing. As 6th graders we step into the life of Maniac Magee and walk, or run, through the streets of Two Mills with him as he heals this small town of racism. The 7th graders travel cross country with Salamica Hiddle as she navigates the perils of adolescence and dealing with loss. Every quarter we pick a specific genre of literature and produce a book project highlighting the high points and plots of the many books read. Along with reading, writing is a major component of our time during the year. Our students learn how to write effective essays, research papers, and use proper grammar. Developing the love of literature and writing comprise the emphasis of our time in English class here at FVCA.
