Language Arts

~Welcome to Mrs. Young's Language Arts Class~


This year, the strucure of our classroom will be based on the Reader's Workshop model for literacy.

"Taking an inquiry stance enables students to learn how to learn. They become empowered and develop a sense of agency." 

-Fountas and Pinnell, 2012
