  • Welcome 7th graders to a new school,
     
    a new schedule, and a new
     
    opportunity for success.  This year is
     
    going to be a year of adjusting to
     
    many teachers, numerous
     
    expectations, and varied subjects.
     
     You bring with you all of the skills you
     
    need to learn and achieve at this level.
     
     

    ELA 7 is all about reading closely and writing using text evidence.  We read both fiction and non-fiction and focus on texts that have connections with Social Studies and Science.  Students will learn reading strategies, note-taking strategies, and ways to organize ideas in short and extended responses.  Through our readings we learn about other countries, other cultures, new ideas, and new ways of looking at the world.
