    In our class, we will:

    • read for pleasure and discover, or hone, our reading personalities
    • continue to practice reading for information and analyzing others' writing as we read
    • write for pleasure as we play with styles and authors' crafts
    • write to tell a story, to inform, and to persuade
    • communicate our ideas clearly with each other and actively listen to the ideas of others
    • develop our vocabulary and grammar skills so our communication skills are taken seriously
    • allow our peers to practice these skills in a safe and supportive environment and expect the same of them in return
