Seventh grade English is a literature-based program designed to build a foundation for life, college and career readiness. Students will read literary and informational texts including: stories, dramas, poems, and myths from diverse cultures and different time periods, offering students literary and cultural knowledge as well as familiarity with various text structures and elements. The writing produced for this course will closely follow the literature, with an emphasis on the writing process. Students will accompany the reading of novels with literary analysis journals and collaborative activities and projects, emphasizing growth in their ability to cite evidence to support analysis of text, to determine themes and story development over the course of the text, and to analyze a wide range of literature to build an understanding of the many dimensions of human experience.
