7th Grade Literature
© 2018 by M Johnson. Web pages created using Xara templates.

Welcome

Seventh grade literature is an opportunity for students to explore in greater depth various genres of literature.  This course will hopefully encourage students to appreciate the joy of reading. “Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”  Stephen King Please check this site weekly to obtain further resources which will assist our classroom study. Mrs. Johnson

Our Class Website

Students and parents: Please take advantage of this website. Much of what we will cover in class is presented through the various pages connected to this website.   Students will also be using Google Classroom to receive and post various assignments. Since Google Classroom requires students to use their personal logins, parents will be able to use this website to keep track of upcoming assignments. The navigation bar at the top of each page will link to the following web pages:

AR

The AR (Accelerated Reader) program is used to measure students’ reading comprehension. Important deadlines will be posted and updated throughout the school year.

Assignments

The Weekly Assignments box at the top right of this page should be checked on a weekly basis. Assignments will be posted on a weekly basis along with due dates. Links will also be provided for students to view or print worksheets. Should a student be absent, classwork and homework will be available for students to view and print.

Notes

Students will be using a 3-subject notebook in which to create and compile their classroom notes. As we proceed through the year, students will be instructed on how to create good working-notes and then how to use those same notes to assist with their assignments, quizzes, and tests.

English Language Arts Standards

Our focus for the year is for students to be familiar with each of the Ohio standards in the area of reading. More importantly, students will be able to understand what the various standards mean and how to apply each standard to their reading. By becoming more familiar with the standards, students will be better equipped to comprehend their state assessments and achieve a proficient score or higher.

Contact

There are several methods of contacting me with your questions or comments. Please refer to the Contact web page to find a method which works best for you. HONORS Literature Class Content for the Honors literature class is made available on the web pages and occasionally there may be separate pages made just for this class. Extra-credit Extra-credit assignments will be made available through this website periodically. Students will have to check on a regular basis  in an effort to locate those postings.
