Middle School English Language Arts (ELA)

In English Language Arts, we use Genre Units developed by the Macomb Intermediate School District (MISD) for a main portion of our instruction.  A Genre Unit is a Chapter Book that ties in the Michigan State Standards.

Books each grade reads can be found in the drop-down below.  The linked information for each book requires a password, please see your child's teacher for more information.
