7th Grade ELA

7th Grade ELA


 

WHAT WE WILL BE STUDYING:

This year we will first focus on the essential elements of a proper sentence and how to write a good paragraph.  Next, we will develop skills in different types of writing, including narrative, argumentative, informative, explanatory, journal writing and reflection, and poetry.  In addition to writing, we will study grammar, vocabulary, and spelling.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • Your Chromebook (Charged!)
  • A pencil
  • Composition book or notebook
  • A good attitude

 

GRADING SYSTEM:

We will use the district grading system (100-90=A, 89-80=B, etc.).  Grades will be determined based on the following:

  • Writing:  50%
  • Grammar: 25%
  • Word Study: 25%

Poetry Project

 

Requirements:

Write five poems.  The style of the poems can be your choice but each poem must be a different style (haiku, limerick, sonnet, elegy, ode, lyric poem, etc).  If the poem is not a haiku or a limerick, it must be at least eight lines long.  If you still have your Conservation limerick and your Veteran’s Day haiku, those can be used for two of your required poems.

 

In your poems, you must show at least one example of each of the following:

  • simile or metaphor
  • alliteration
  • end rhyme
  • ABAB rhyme scheme

                                                    

Due date: May 11th
