• Montford Language Arts Department Webpage

    At Montford, we build upon our students' foundational skills of reading and writing, identifying, evaluating and analyzing  key literary elements and the author's purpose for incorporating those elements. We use a literary selection of diverse texts of genres and themes that are centered around our new Florida Best Standards and Sync Study curriculum with McGraw Hill publishing company. An overview of these elements and literary text time periods is listed below.  Please  Click on the Montford Language Arts Department Webpage link above to get more insight on our department and all that is happening within our language arts classrooms.  There, you also can access information about our Required Summer Reading Program.

    We look forward to welcoming our Mustangs back on campus for the 2022 -2023 school year!
