About My Class

In Grades 6, 7, and 8 English classes, students refine and master previously learned knowledge and skills in increasingly complex presentations, reading selections, and writing. The focus of the English class will be on developing and improving writing skills.

Students will:

  • Use the elements of the writing process (planning, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing) to compose text.
  • Write literary texts to express their ideas and feeling about real or imagined people, events, and ideas.
  • Write about their own experiences. 
  • Compose original texts, applying the conventions of written language such as capitalization, punctuation, penmanship, and spelling to communicate clearly.
  • Understand the function of and use the conventions of academic language when speaking and writing.
  • Write legibly and use appropriate capitalization and punctuation conventions in their compositions.
