LANGUAGE ARTS 7/8

This is a comprehensive language arts and literature studies course that will cover writing, vocabulary, spelling, and reading comprehension while promoting active reading and reflective thinking. Literature studies will provide the stimulus for writing, and assignments will give students exposure to the elements, language, and methods of writing focusing on content, style, organization, and mechanics. Writing skills will be challenged and refined through classroom instruction, guided practice, and at-home assignments.

 

Students need to read and write at the 7th-grade level.  This is not a remedial class. Please plan to spend 3-6 hours each week reading the assigned chapters and completing homework assignments.
