ELA Magnet Program at E. Russell Hicks Middle School

Technology and ELA work hand in hand to create a learning environment that engages Magnet students in reading, writing, speaking, and language while opening up doors for creativity and exploration.

As we move into a new age of technology and interaction, students are being rewired to approach reading and writing with laptops, tablets, and phones in mind.  Our ELA classes effectively utilize traditional means within the classroom (handwritten essays, the Norton Anthology of World Literature) in conjunction with the iPads (iBooks, iMovie, EDUCreations) to create a dynamic blend of paper and processor.
