Welcome,


Building a solid foundation of language arts skills is essential for the journey students have ahead of them both in their future academic and workplace careers.  This year, the Quimby Oak language arts department is excited to be working with the new curriculum through McDougal Littell.  Weaving the California state standards throughout a comprehensive plan, students will work on skills in the following categories: 

Reading

--comprehension

--literary analysis

Writing

--grammar

--mechanics

--spelling

--composition

Speaking, Listening & Viewing

--presentations

--notetaking

--visual comprehension

Vocabulary

--word analysis

--concept development

--academic language

A variety of materials including short stories, novels, plays, poetry and nonfiction will provide the base for thoughtful discussion, analysis, writing and presentations.

We look forward to an exciting year with all of our students.

Thank you.
