Welcome to Academic Literacy with Ms. PeacheyI'm so excited to begin yet another year of this terrific course! I've been teaching in the SCASD for many years, both as a fifth grade teacher at Ferguson Elementary and as the Reading Specialist at Radio Park Elementary School. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns (firstname.lastname@example.org).The following is a brief description of the Ac Lit course:
The purpose of this course is for students to review and extend literacy skills practiced in the seventh-grade course. Throughout this course, students will build critical thinking skills to access, analyze, and evaluate more complex texts. Students will continue to develop extensive reading and metacognitive conversations through inquiry-based learning. In addition, students will identify, analyze, and evaluate textual claims and evidence in order to establish their own substantiated claims or positions. Students will develop as readers and thinkers through exploration of personal, informational, visual, and communication literacy.
