Welcome to 7th Grade English
The study of English in seventh grade emphasizes a workshop approach.  Literature covers a wide array of genres and themes, usually integrated with social studies, library/media and technology lessons.  Ultimately, the goals of the reading and writing workshops are to provide students with a range of options for writing about literature, connecting it to life, and helping students to develop a repertoire of strategies they can internalize and apply as autonomous learners in a literate world.  By the year’s end, all students are expected to complete and present a showcase portfolio.
