Exeter-Milligan Update: Reading Buddies


Language Arts Fall Update

By Brandi Perez, Exeter-Milligan 9-12 Language Arts Instructor


There have been a few different things going on in each of the ELA grade levels recently. English 9 students just started reading To Kill a Mockingbird and are noticing patterns of sibling relationships from the book and in their own lives. The freshmen are also focusing on how people are defined by their actions, and under what circumstances. English 10 students just finished up their Children’s Book Unit and read to the kindergarten class. Since then, students have been in their myPerspectives curriculum book working on the unit titled “Inside the Nightmare.” They have been reading spooky stories by many authors, such as Edgar Allen Poe and talking about what scares them. English 11 students are now reviewing their parts of speech and will soon be in their myPerspectives curriculum. English 12 students just finished their unit within their Perspectives curriculum about reflecting on society. The seniors are now working on their writing within their grammar book. The journalism students are hard at work with their new website, as well as creating graphics for the winter sports season.
