Note: Most 7th grade guidance activities, assignments, and discussions are done in class. In the case that there is an outside assignment, it will be posted on here.
In 7th grade guidance, we do a variety of in-class activities that help us learn about a specific topic. These in-class activities include: hands-on games and activities, group and class discussions, working with elementary classes, using computers for research, read-alouds, watching movies, and role-plays. Following each activity is a class discussion, summary handout, or in-class assignment.
