In Writing Class, students will work with spelling words from our KSD grade level list of common words and practice content area vocabulary. They will study spelling patterns, prefixes, suffixes, antonyms and synonyms. Students will practice English syntax and grammar using the Fitzgerald Key as a writing tool. Instruction will be provided on writing in various styles, for different audiences and for purposes, by producing narrative pieces, opinion papers and informational writings. All students will continue to develop their Writing Portfolios to showcase a collection of their writing development over time. It is my hope that students will feel confident to attack the complex structures of English and have the freedom to express themselves through writing!
