Welcome to Ms. Bracamontes' Language Arts and Ancient World History class at Livingston Middle School! I am so excited to have the wonderful opportunity to teach you this year. I believe that every student in this class can reach his or her academic goals through diligence, dedication, and participation. I hope to create a positive learning environment where creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication are utilized. Over the course of the year, we will be learning and applying skills that matter in our lives. We will use analytical skills to explore literature, appreciate non-fiction works, and examine informational texts that teach us about the world we live in. We will expand our vocabulary, sharpen our grammar, and work towards becoming effective writers. We will also use technology to enhance our learning. Every skill you gain and apply in this class will help prepare you towards high school and college readiness. I look forward to a great year of learning!
