     Language Arts:      

Reading comprehension, literary elements, grammar and writing are incorporated throughout the year within various novels and short stories as well as poetry, articles, essays, letters, propaganda and other genres to enhance the historical units.  Students will write for a variety of purposes in 7th grade.  Our goal is for students to establish fluency and correctness in their writing as they explore the crafts of authors both in and out of the classroom.

     Social Studies:      

Students will meet district and state expectations by exploring the beginning of modern American History, from its first inhabitants through its European influences in the founding of the United States as a nation.   They will consider the history of Texas as it is woven within the framework of United States history.  Students will actively participate in the learning process through simulations, drama, art, music, projects, research and technology.  Students will practice analyzing many types of primary sources to more fully understand how true historians interpret events.
