In this class, we will analyze short stories, drama, poetry, informational texts, and persuasive texts. We will write short stories, poetry, informational texts, persuasive texts, and create a multi-media research project.

We will watch BrainPop and Flocabulary videos. We will use www.NoRedInk.com to practice grammar skills independently.  We will read a combination of whole-class works, small-group works, and individual pieces including novels and short stories.

We will study Greek and Latin affixes in 7th grade, and we will use VocabuLit in 8th grade to expand our vocabulary.
We will use a combination of Kahoot, Quizizz, Quizlet, and Plickers for studying and quiz-taking. We will also use Google tools on a regular basis.

You will have choices in what you work on more often than not.
