Welcome to 7th Grade English!
The focus of seventh grade English is communication. We will begin the year discussing what it is, how it works, how it started and evolved, and how it affects the way we live. From there we will present ourselves to the class as communicators (thinkers, speakers, readers, and writers).
All units that follow are designed to improve our communication skills: short stories, non-fiction, research, independent reading with conferencing and journals, one novel unit, poetry, drama, vocabulary development, sentence combining, daily oral language, and narrative, informative, and argumentative writing.
