What's Happening on 7A?
ELA - November/December
During the first week of December, we will begin our first essay. It will be an expository essay in which the students will be asked to explain what a "perfect day" entails. As always, we will be going through the steps of the writing process in class: brainstorming, planning, drafting, revising and editing. I provide graphic organizers for the planning stage and checklists for revising and editing, since students are still learning about and developing these skills.
After we finish the essay, we will begin reading/performing The Miracle Worker in class. This is a three-act play based on the early childhood of Helen Keller. Students will be asked to use costumes and props in class to enhance this experience. Stay tuned for more information on this!
