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

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.
