Welcome to the World of Integrated Social Studies & Language Arts
Urban Middle School
I am very proud to be a part of the Urban Middle School Staff teaching Integrated Social Studies and Language Arts for the 2006-2007 school year. I am a born native of Iron River Michigan, yes I am a "Yooper." I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Superior where I earned my degree in Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Technology Education which I hope to complete in 2007.
A word about integrated Social Studies and Language Arts:
As students move into 8th grade, and have acquired many years of developmental literacy, they are expected to utilize the Language Arts process as a functional activity within any content area. Social Studies and Language Arts integration is a very natural process where the content material of Social Studies is learned through the natural infusion of Language Arts components including Vocabulary, Comprehension, Literature, Writing, including grammar and mechanics, and the process of organizing content material.
