Welcome to the Blue Team English Language Arts page.
Amesbury Public Schools use the John Collins Writing Program. Students keep a living writing folder in class where all writing assignments stay. As new skills are learned and strengthened, past writing activities become authentic works for students to practice with.
Students practice a variety of reading strategies in class through the help of our partnership with TLA (The Teaching and Learning Alliance). Strategies include: inferring, visualizing, determining importance, predicting, questioning, summarizing, using context clues and connecting. Students work collaboratively and individually to strengthen comprehension.
