Full course description

Course Description

  • For the 2021-22 school year, an RHMS school-wide goal is to create literacy opportunities for students within all content areas (including electives). Because of this goal, the opportunity for teachers from all content areas will have the opportunity to take part in reading, evaluating, and curating a list of young adult novels in regard to content, themes, and cross-content connections. This in turn will give students the opportunity to see how different content areas use vocabulary and begin to make connections between each content area.
