Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Saint Joseph Regional School! Welcome back to our 7th and 8th grade students! A special welcome to the upper unit is extended to our 6th grade and all newly enrolled students!
Welcome to Voyages in English, a comprehensive grammar and writing curriculum. Voyages will be providing the tools necessary for the students in Grades 6, 7 and 8th to develop and become effective, powerful communicators.
Never before has the need for effective language arts instruction been more consequential than in today’s world of communication in which students are required to be powerful writers and speakers. As students improve their ability to write, they also improve their ability to think both analytically and creatively. Voyages offers everything needed to teach the students to evaluate information from various sources, synthesize that information confidently, and craft a narrative that engages, informs, or persuades.
Voyages in English will enable the students in Grades 6, 7 and 8th to master grammar through direct instruction, rigorous practice, written application, and ongoing assessment. It will guide the students to experience, explore, and improve their writing through an in-depth study of 11 writing genres per grade. It will also give the students meaningful practice and enhance their confidence to communicate with clarity, accuracy and ease.
Students respond best to learning when it’s presented as a positive opportunity and a challenging adventure.
