Welcome to Academic Literacy with Mrs. Stout! What an exciting year this will be! On a more personal note, I just moved here from Lancaster with my family. This includes my husband, Will, my son, Owen, and my chocolate lab, Reese! We love the State College area and I LOVE to work with middle schoolers and help them to become enthusiastic about reading.
In this course, you will learn how to become a strategic reader and be more effective with accessing and understanding all types of text. I like to be active so although it is Academic Literacy class, you will be moving and discussing as well! Also, one of my favorite things about teaching is getting to know you as a person AND a reader. I look forward to meeting you soon!
For this class you will need to bring a self-selected book from home, a pencil, a highlghter, and a binder each day! Also, bring your best attitude!
