Welcome to 7th grade PreAP English!

Seventh grade Pre-AP students continue to develop an analytical approach to reading in increasingly difficult texts. New literary terms are introduced so students can continue their development of the language of the critic. Using a wide variety of texts, both classical and contemporary, students analyze how the author’s style, choice of words and selected genre blend to create meaning. In writing, students are expected to use more complex sentence structures and grammatical constructions. Additionally, students learn to organize ideas in convincing and sophisticated ways for a variety of purposes and audiences.

In the language arts Gifted and Talented courses, students with advanced learning abilities are provided with an enriched academic environment using a variety of instructional methods and materials. Students will engage in self-initiated and selfdirected learning. Students read widely in classic and contemporary selections and informational texts, as well as develop and express ideas through sophisticated and well-constructed compositions and presentations. Evaluations stress higherlevel thinking skills, creativity and excellence in performance and products.

Homework

Homework will be assigned to extend learning or to allow for extra practice. However, I do ask that the students read their library book 20 minutes a day. By reading each day, they will be practicing critical skills required for success in and out of the classroom.
