Word Generation Program comes to Morton!

"Word Generation is an innovative approach to academic language development for students in grades 4-8.... the program includes units about controversial topics with brief lessons for middle school teachers in all academic subjects."  For the next two weeks, our students will be talking and writing about the article "What is the Purpose of School?" and focusing on the words: analyze, factor, function, interpret and structure.  Families are encouraged to join in on the conversation at home!
