Welcome to my webpage. In 7th grade reading we will be studying Greek and Latin roots throughout the year. We will also be concentrating on the literary devices and elements as they relate to the different genres. I also have a number of novels that the students will be reading this year; Out of the Dust, The Cay and The Outsiders will be on the agenda along with a few others as yet to be determined. In 7th grade students will also be responsible for acquiring 20 AR points each quarter. Thursdays will be our reading day in the library to find books and spend some uninterrupted time reading those books. Students will also be completing book reports/projects each quarter based on what they have read that quarter. I look forward to working with your child.
