GRADE 7 – ELA

 

Welcome back!  We will begin this year in ELA, reviewing your understanding of literary elements and techniques.  Using the Literature textbook, we will read several short stories to identify these elements, prior to moving on to our in-depth study of folklore.

In writing, we are going to focus on creating fully developed, cohesive literary essays.  This will be a step-by-step process building off of the reader’s response essays we worked on last year.  In addition, you will be tasked with a variety of writing assignments throughout the year. 

Finally, we will work on public speaking – you will talk a lot in this class!  Be prepared to express your thinking, while also listening and evaluating the thoughts of your classmates. 

 

EXTRA-HELP IS OFFERED ON FRIDAY MORNINGS!
