Saint Martha Middle School Students Put the "Lit" in Literature!


Welcome to the middle school Literature and Language Arts page!  There are so many new and exciting things to discover as you embark on this journey where literary characters will start to feel like old friends and you will express your research findings in written form.  Some of the highlights of the middle school program include:
  • Learning to identify literary elements such as irony, allegory, foreshadowing, imagery, and symbolism
  • Reading a work of Shakespeare
  • Writing from a variety of prompts
  • Using the writing process to produce descriptive, narrative, expository, and persuasive pieces
  • Building new vocabulary skills and exploring word relationships
  • Being role models to the younger grade students through the "Buddy" Program
