WELCOME TO THE JMS ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS INFORMATION PAGE
The Jefferson ELA department honors teacher individuality while still seeking common ground for our students' grade level experiences. Our teachers bring their passion for reading and writing to your students. Language Arts is about the art of using language, and in our 21st Century world that means writing online as well as offline. Our students blog, create websites, produce oral presentations, and more. In Language Arts, our students nurture their love of literature while also learning to recognize the stories of their own lives. They learn that informational writing, when coupled with persuasive writing, can give them power as well as giving them a voice in this world.
