Camas School District utilizes the curriculum by Lucy Calkins of the Columbia University Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. The year begins with a review of basic sentence crafting and proper paragraph structure and moves into Calkin’s three large units of essay writing. Unit One- Investigative Journalism Unit Two- Literary Essay: Analyzing Craft and Theme Unit Three- Position Paper: Research and Argument
In addition, students will write short literary responses, journal entries, and claim-evidence-reasoning reponses bi-weekly.
