Welcome to Reading Strategies class!  I am Mrs. Wall-Smith,  your Reading Teacher.  I love reading and writing.  One of the things I enjoyed most when I was around your age was entering the "Young Author's Contest" at my school.  It was a chance for students to write pieces of work, assemble it in a creatively designed book, and enter it in a contest.  The furthest I went was Regionals, but I was happy to get that far.  I am so happy you have found your way here and we get to share some time together. Spending the next few months with you exploring different strategies and techniques to support your reading will be an adventure. During this time we will meet exciting characters through the books we share and connect with.  We will also learn how reading relates to all the other subjects, because READING IS EVERYWHERE!

Class Description:

Reading Strategies class is designed to support Language Arts as well as other course curriculum.  In this class, the focus is to learn objectives from the Virginia Standards of Learning using various researched based strategies and techniques. Those strategies and techniques will be delivered through various ways such as reading, writing, presenting, collaborating, and more all while gaining an appreciation and love for reading.
