•          The Power of Words   

    Welcome to 7th grade Language Arts!  Our focus this school year will be learning and developing our skills as critical thinkers, readers, writers, speakers, & listeners.  The development and mastery of these literary skills is important not only to achieving success in the LA classroom; it is a critical component of achieving success in other school subjects, building strong relationships, and attaining a flourishing career as an adult.  I am looking forward to a fantastic school year with you!  We will read (a lot), write (a lot), & collaborate (a lot) during our time together.  As a result, you will gain a deeper appreciation for the power of words.
