Course Description: Language is power, and our ability to use language purposefully, to communicate with others, is what makes us human. So, whether we are reading this course description, answering emails from Old Aunt Susan, writing a book report, asking for forgiveness from a loved one, appealing to politicians to think, feel, believe, or do something, or just writing for ourselves, language is an art . . . language is a skill . . . the art of language, whether written or spoken (or signed) is at the core of an ideal education. This month, students will explore the power of language through reading, writing, speaking, reflecting, and experiencing language through reading Linda Sue Park's bestselling 2010 novel, A Long Walk to Water. They will also develop their written communication through integrated grammar, mechanics, and composition activities (differentiated to meet the needs of diverse learning differences).

Book is included.
