English/History Core

English Language Arts

Students will be reading a variety of grade-level novels to develop their reading comprehension and writing skills.  The ultimate goal is to help students develop a love for both reading and writing as they participate in collaborative conversations and learn to effectively interact with the text as we read these novels together.  Additionally, students will also read a variety of nonfiction texts to develop their critical thinking and research skills.  

History

Students will set off on a year-long adventure as we study about the great civilizations that came before us during ancient times.  Our project-based program will provide students with the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the development of civilizations in Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China, Greece, and Rome

  • Read and annotate main ideas and key details from the textbook and other related sources

  • Explore their cartography (mapmaking) skills

  • Plan and develop creative projects that display their learning within each unit of study
