“If a nation’s literature declines, the nation atrophies and decays.” Ezra Pound 
 
For a great, interactive website that features released reading SOLs for your student to practice answering multiple-choice questions go to the following:
 
The English department at Harmony Middle School consists of sections of Honors and Academic at the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade level. Expectations in the all grades include an emphasis on developing literacy skills, such as reading comprehension and writing techniques.  All grade levels are heavily based on reading and writing workshop in order to give students choice while developing their skills.  All grades take a Reading SOL in the spring.  Eighth grade students are also expected to take a Writing SOL in March. 
 
The textbooks the department is using currently are McDougal Littell's Language of Literature and Language Network, both of which were published in 2000, although most classes base their instruction on novels, short stories, poetry, and other types of texts.
