GRAMMAR AND MATH FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS
In middle school English classes, we strive to build on the strong grammar foundation many of our students received through the Shurley English program and apply that knowledge to student writing and literary analysis. Since some of our incoming students are not as familiar with this approach to grammar and composition, Mrs. Hayes has compiled a grammar packet, a basic review of terms and concepts she will teach in the first weeks of school. A review of this information by all students, but particularly by students who did not study Shurley English in grade school, will help ensure an easier entry into middle school English classes in the upcoming school year.
