Hello. I'm Ms. Young. I'm an Multi-Linguistic Learner Teacher at the Upper Campus. I teach Language Academy students Social Studies and Science. In these classes, I support students English language development while learning about science or social studies. We focus on academic language in our writing, reading, speaking and listening.
This fall in Social Studies we are working on Immigration Timelines for cultural groups who have come to Minnesota, including Karen, Hmong, Mexican and Somali groups. We hope to learn more about the reasons people move to Minnesota and about these cultures.
In Science, we have been learning about food webs and ecoystems. As we start the second quarter, we will being to do experiments and learn about the water cycle!
I am proud to be a part of the 6th grade team, working with MLL students in Reader's Workshop, Writer's Workshop and Minnesota Studies. I support student's academic writing and language development inside the content classroom.
I can be reached via email at any time. If English is not your first language, feel free to email me in your home language. I will arrange for translation with our staff here at GAP or in the district. I am available via phone too, so feel free to call. Otherwise, we can use email to set up an appointment with a translator on the phone.
