Language Arts Department
The Language Arts Department at MSSD aims to develop and strengthen students' literacy skills so that they can understand, interpret, and communicate in a variety of contexts. Literacy is a key factor in our students' ability to continually expand their knowledge, achieve their goals, and participate in society.
In language arts classes at MSSD, students read and interpret text, learn how to use conventions of language to clarify their signed and written messages, and use critical thinking and communication skills to create and present messages in both ASL and English.
Instruction is tailored to each student based on their Individualized Education Program goals and postsecondary transition plans.
