    Welcome to Mrs. Oakes' English Language Arts and Reading 

    GO RAMS!

    Students will have the opportunity in this class to benefit from cross-disciplinary literacy instruction that will:    
          1. build on a staircase of increasing complexity in reading. 
          2. promote writing based on substantive claims, sound reasoning and relevant evidence.
          3. foster speaking and listening as increasingly complex information, ideas, and evidence is gained, 
              evaluated, and presented.
          4. develop the language standards of vocabulary and conventions through all the above.
