Language Arts

Running Mickey      Class Description:  

The purpose of 7th grade language arts is to build upon and expand each student's abilities in the realms of reading, writing, research, and communication. Students will explore various fiction and nonfiction genres throughout the year while improving their vocabulary and reading comprehension skills. Instruction will also focus on developing students' skills in the narrative, persuasive and expository forms of writing. In addition, this class will provide students with opportunities to conduct research in conjunction with the library, as well as to prepare and deliver whole-class presentations. A final goal is for students to learn best practices for communicating effectively in small group discussions.
