Students will begin class every day by writing in their journal.  A suggested
topic will be put on the board, but students are encouraged to select a topic of their own.  All students will be given a list of suggestions for ideas to help them prepare their book report.

  In January, we will begin our study of nonfiction.  Nonfiction includes biographies, autobiographies, articles, essays,etc.
I will be available after school on certain days of the week to help students.  We will look at study skills and test taking skills, as well as individualized help.  













7th Grade

Seventh grade students are working in the areas of both fiction and nonfiction.  They are comparing the two.  They are also learning about text structures.  We are also learning about the types of conflict in a work of fiction.
