  • Welcome to 7th Grade ELA!


    Course Overview

    This year, we will explore a variety of texts.  There will be five units, fiction and nonfiction, short stories, types of nonfiction, poetry,and themes in oral traditions, in which you will have the opportunity to read, write, listen, and speak.  Along with the literature we will read in class, you will read at least 2,500 pages on your own.  There will be a New York State test in April.  We will work hard together to ensure that you have a successful year!

    Let the Hunger Games begin!  We are full of excitement as we are engrossed in The Hunger Games.  Not only are we reading the novel, we will also explore its themes, figurative language, and symbolism.  Make sure you have books 2 and 3 ready to read this summer!

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
