Changes for 7th Grade LA

The last two weeks of grammar instruction have proven to be quite interesting for our young 7th graders.  Formative assessments reveal some major struggles. Therefore, we are putting off the literary essay and focusing in on the grammar.  This will allow us to “nip” the issues now and free up time for more writing later in the year. Our MLA biography unit will start following ERBs (week of 10/24) with a trip to ImaginOn to learn about research skills and reading nonfiction well.  More details to come…
