SC English 7

Welcome to our English class!
This year you will be introduced to many new things as we embrace current New York State Curriculum; improve on some material you already learned; and, learn and reinforce skills and strategies that you will need for middle school, high school as you grow increasingly ready for college and the workplace. You will explore many areas of English that include multiple literary genres. There will be special emphasis on active involvement in reading strategies, thinking and analyzing skills,
essay planning and writing strategies, vocabulary and grammar skills, and research skills. Class participation is extremely important when we are working on in-class tasks and when working on on-line or at home activities! Students must be prepared for each class with books, materials, and assignments. Homework and projects will be assigned to reinforce and expand learning and skills. I look forward to helping you grow as a student and as a person!



SC Reading Support Goals
 
Our goal this year is to find ways of improving the understanding of words and what we read as we increase reading decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills. To do that we have to be totally involved in what we read. In other words, we must learn strategies to become active, hands-on readers! Throughout the school year we will explore ways of becoming involved in the activity of reading while utilizing both in-class and on-line materials. This year you will be introduced to new things; improve on some material you already learned; and, learn and reinforce skills and strategies that you will always need for middle school, high school, and beyond as you prepare for college and the work place. I look forward to helping you grow as both a reader and a person!
