This web page is for 7th & 8th grade English Language Arts (ELA). Please come by the school and visit. Our classroom is located off the gym and next to the shop class.
The Common Core Standards for ELA cover many of the same topics in grammar and writing, but the depth that is covered, the level of mastery, and expectations are different for each grade level. Our focus is ELA everyday– Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, Researching, Vocabulary, & typing.
