Language Arts

  • The language arts program at Bennett’s Mill is aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence. Students will work daily in all strands of the English/language arts curriculum

    • reading
    • writing
    • grammar conventions
    • listening
    • speaking

    Students will actively participate in a wide assortment of genres of literature, grammar and usage conventions, vocabulary development, and formal/informal forms of writing.

    Expectations for listening, speaking, and viewing behavior will be taught and modeled. Opportunities to practice these skills will include whole-class and small-group activities, projects, oral presentations, student-teacher conferences, and round-table discussions. Strategic use of films and videos will also enrich cultural and media literacy.
