Set the Stage for Academic Success
The importance of middle-school academics (the "make it or break it" years) cannot be overstated, especially for college-bound students. Critical reading and writing skills will give students a solid foundation for the next grade level, as well as for the rigor of advanced high-school curriculum, standardized assessment tests, and eventually, college entrance exams. These skills will prove valuable in every subject and in every grade.
Our Critical Reading and Writing course for grade 7-8 will focus on developing English language arts through a variety of texts and essays. Students will learn grade-level appropriate grammar, sentence structure, and paragraph format through activities that will enhance their reading and writing skills. They will analyze and evaluate texts from a variety of sources to improve their textual analysis and writing skills.
Guided by teachers with years of experience, the class is full of fun activities and interactive games. Learning to read and write has never been more fun!
Lessons are designed based on Common Core English Standards to guarantee future school success.
