7th Grade Language Arts 

Course Description: 

Every lesson and assignment connect to the following standards:

Vocabulary - Reading - Writing  -  Media Literacy & Communication.

We will focus on standards-based grading which means each grade in the gradebook will directly reflect the student’s mastery of a specific skill. Students will gain insight and reach mastery by participating in a variety of authentic literacy activities, enjoying rich book club selections and exploring our Scholastic text Expert 21. Students will complete each unit feeling confident in their abilities to demonstrate and discuss their mastery level skills.

This course emphasizes the fundamental language skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, thinking, viewing, and presenting. The course includes studies of various literary genres: short story, poetry, novel, research, and nonfiction. Students are expected to participate in Word Study to enhance vocabulary and etymology skills. Composition will be an ongoing part of this course, and students will hone the persuasive, narrative, and expository writing styles. 

Some books we will be reading this year are: 

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Refugee by Alan Gratz 
Red Scarf Girl by Ji-Li Jiang


I am the Language Arts teacher for team Adams. On my class page, you will find notes, assignment details, handouts, my expectations, useful links, and much more! I encourage you to check my class page frequently for updates. In my Language Arts classroom, students will be challenged to think critically about a variety of genres while mastering multiple writing styles. Students will also get to practice and develop their reading and writing skills using prevelant strategies. I hope you find navigating my class page helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning!
