Class Introduction:

This subject includes an interrelated approach using literature based anthologies, reference materials, subject area text books, life-long materials, and library books. Vocabulary development, comprehension, and other reading skills are incorporated into three areas: recreational reading, study skills(reading for a spoecific purpose), and whole-group discussion along with reading jounal responses. Projects will be assigned throughout the year. In addition to the required nightly reading, the Accelerated Reading Program will be used to encourage and assess reading.
