7th Grade Language Arts Overview
In Language Arts, we are working on strengthening analysis skills as readers and writers, and growing as independent learners.
Units of Novel Study
All the Broken Pieces by Ann E. Burg
Scrawl by Mark Shulman
War-Torn Literature Circles
Supplemented with Greek and Latin Roots, short stories, and poetry.
Expectations for Independent Reading
- Read regularly at home in addition to reading in class. Our goal is at least 1.5 hours each week outside of class.
- Find books, authors, subjects, themes, and genres that matter to you, your life, who you are now, and who you might become.
- Try new books, authors, subjects, purposes, and genres. Find stories that make you happy and feed your soul. Life is too short to read a book you don’t like.
- As you read, collect your ideas using our Reading Bingo for an end of the quarter project.
