Welcome to 7th Grade English Language Arts! I have been teaching for 13 years, and am proud to have been a part of the Biloxi Public Schools' "Indian Nation" for the past 10 years. Go Indians! The 7th Grade ELA Team is looking forward to meeting and getting to know each of you. Proficiency in English is required for high school graduation.
The seventh grade English curriculum will encompass Common Core State Standards and 21stCentury skills that expose students to rigorous content designed to propel them toward proficiency in college and career readiness. As a result, students will learn to grapple with high-quality, complex nonfiction texts and great works of literature. In addition, students will learn to write with increasing sophistication and develop a rich vocabulary of academic words, which they will use to speak and write with more precision. This course will also include English-related skills in problem-solving, decision-making, critical thinking, human relations, career exploration, organization, and personal skills to prepare students for their future careers.
