Welcome to Mrs. Trent's 7th Grade ELA website!

Our year is going to focus on sharpening
your ability to look closely at what you are reading and to think logically as you strengthen your speaking and writing skills. I will be encouraging you to ask questions, and I will challenge you to support your opinions with evidence so that your writing and reading skills will be constantly improving.

Our classroom will be centered on YOU - the learner. I will be teaching mini-lessons at time, but we will have breakout sessions, choices of reading text, menu items, and writing topics. I do have a curriculum to follow, but we have quite a bit of personal ownership of what, when, and where built in to the model. I will be here to facilitate your learning, help you along the way, and make sure you have everything you need to master each skill with suitable rigor.

Details of each of our units of study will be listed over to the right including the knowledge and skills we will be covering for each unit.

Each of my students has access to Google Classroom and HRW (our literature book) online. I communicate with them almost every day through Google Classroom. Please ask them to show you their page so you can see what we are doing on a daily basis. I also utilize Socrative.com for quizzes at times and Quizlet for short practices. Those link are usually loaded into Google Classroom as well. I also use Remind 101, and my codes for each class are listed below for students and parents. 

I am looking forward to our trek together!!
