7th Grade Language Arts Class
Welcome to 7th Grade Language Arts Class at Rye Junior High School! I am looking forward to watching students take on new, academic challenges this year.
I wanted to take a moment and familiarize you with our 7th grade language arts curriculum. Each trimester we will focus on one genre of writing and use short stories and novels to support this instruction. For the first trimester, we are focusing on narrative writing and texts. We will then move into crafting argumentative and informational pieces.
In addition to strengthening students’ writing skills, students will also be given instruction that will improve their reading skills. Students will be exposed to a variety of texts that challenge them at their reading levels. In class, both mentor texts and short stories will be used to further students’ reading comprehension and serve as a model for their written pieces.
If you have any questions or concerns about the language arts curriculum, please do not hesitate to reach out me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (603) 964-5591 ext. 330. I look forward to working with you this year to prepare your child to be a lifelong reader and writer.
