Secondary Reading Files
In late April 2011, Secondary Literacy Coaches, Karla Halcomb and Karen Irwin along with the support of former Principal, Karen Harrel, hosted a Language! Night for rising 5th graders at South Doyle Middle School. Included in this file are various resources, presentations, and videos shared with parents.
The Middle School Curriculum Standards show all the skills that are taught by grade in the areas of Reading and Language Arts.
This guide provides an overview of what your child will learn by the end of 8th grade in mathematics and English language arts/literacy. It focuses on the key skills your child will learn in these subjects, which will build a strong foundation for success in the other subjects he or she studies throughout the school year. This guide is based on the new Common Core State Standards, which have been adopted by more than 40 states. These K–12 standards are informed by the highest state standards from across the country. If your child is meeting the expectations outlined in these standards, he or she will be well prepared for high school.
