In Grade 5 Language, our students will learn to value the power of language and use it responsibly. They will learn how to express feelings and opinions and support these opinions with research by using clear language in formal and informal situations. As they read and reflect on a rich variety of literary, informational, and media texts, they will develop a deeper understanding of themselves, others, and of the world around them. They will also develop the ability to understand and critically interpret a range of texts, and to recognize how a text is affected by the author’s perspective. This course is designed to be 200-300 instructional hours.
