7th Grade ELA News

Week of September 19-23

WELCOME to 7th Grade English Language Arts!

Our goal for the year is to learn to read and think as writers, to look at texts through a writer’s eye. We will be reading and writing poetry, narratives, informational, and argumentative texts. You will have the opportunity to read engaging, thought-provoking texts and novels you won’t want to put down. By examining these exemplary texts, you will build your skills as a writer and be able to communicate your ideas effectively. We will also spend time building your vocabulary and technology skills. Discussion, both speaking and listening, as well as working in collaboration with others will play a large role in class and help to prepare you for the college and career world.
