    Hello, I am Ms. Henry.  I teach  8th grade Language Arts (English)  here at MMS.  I have been lucky enough to teach here for 5 years now and each year I am excited to see what new stories the students share and create in class. 
    This year we will be exploring reading and writing as it has evolved in the age of technology.  We will use a variety of technology tools in the classroom to learn and understand how to share our thoughts, ideas, comments, and knowledge in a way that connects students with their community through authentic audience, purposeful exhibition of growth, and demonstrations of knowledge.     Some examples of the technology tools (Web 2.0)  that will use are Edublog, Google Sites, Google Classroom, and StudySync,
    The writing program we will be engaging in throughout the school year is from Columbia Teacher's College: Lucy Caulkins. (TCRWP)    
    Students will explore a variety of reading material and examine it for how good writers write.  We will also explore reading material to broaden our knowledge of the world.  We will learn to support our claims and opinions with evidence that strengthens our stance and encourages others to listen to what we are sharing. 
    Current Syllabus:  Syllabus 2019/20
