Pathways ELA II
Welcome to Ms. Lindamood's Pathways ELA page!
Pathways Language Arts will include reading, writing, speaking, and listening and will draw from a variety of materials, both fiction and non-fiction. Through choral, guided, and individual reading, the focus will be on improvement in fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Students will write about a variety of topics and the writing may include book reports, news articles, persuasive essays, character analysis, plot summaries, and creative writing. Students will explore grammar and sentence structure and will work on planning and organizing, writing, editing and revising their written work. We will examine plot, theme, character, cause and effect, audience and purpose, mood and tone. We will also continue to strengthen vocabulary. Curriculum will be based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, as modified for individual student needs.
