Language Arts 7 Advanced

Language Arts 7 Advanced: Curriculum

This year we will continue to use our district adopted literacy program entitled SpringBoard.  The SpringBoard program is designed to support high expectations for all students, prepare them for success in high school and college classes, provide rigorous reading and writing skills, and strengthen students’ problem-solving, critical thinking, and reasoning skills. While this class will address the core standards of 7th grade, we will also incorporate many of the 8th grade standards. We will be working at an accelerated pace and developing a growth mindset.

 Please check here as well as Power School for class assignments.
