Let's get middle school students ready for high school and beyond! At this age, students are expected to work more independently and understand information in complex texts. Students must learn how to be good readers and use what they read to support their ideas when speaking and writing. Middle school teachers can use LiteracyTA's framework for teaching reading, speaking, and writing skills to give students confidence and ability to read strategically and communicate effectively. Our teacher guides, classroom materials, and online resources give teachers the support they need to teach reading, speaking, and writing!
