Language Arts and Social Studies

An overview of Language Arts and Social Studies instruction at Fort Hunt.

Students receive language arts and social studies instruction within the same block of time in their day. Language arts instruction at the elementary level includes both reading and writing instruction. Social studies is often integrated into language arts through texts that students read and research opportunities in writing.

Fort Hunt fosters our students to be a literate class of high level thinkers.

We are able to push our students understanding of the world through reading and writing during:

  • reading and writing workshop
  • critical analysis in whole group and independent settings
  • academic discourse 
  • high level questioning through read-alouds
  • book clubs
  • genre studies
