 5th Grade: MS105
In this course, students will focus on cultivating creative and academic writing skills. During the first half of the semester, students will develop creative writing skills; specifically, students will learn and cultivate their ability to create realistic plots, conflicts, and characters even within non-realistic fiction, like fantasy, dystopia, or sci-fi. Then, in the second half of the semester, students will focus on academic writing including literary analysis and biography.  Finally, this course will also include 5 books of different genres, including fantasy, sci-fi, historical nonfiction, biography, and young adult fiction. This varied reading list will not only challenge and engage students, but also present an opportunity to discuss a variety of character types, conflicts, etc. All course readings are united by a similar theme (relationships with an emphasis on race relations) to provide structure for students throughout the semester and to facilitate discussion surrounding text-to-text comparisons.
