• Grade 7 ELA continues the development of written language skills with guided practice
    in process writing, "writing to a prompt," and writing to persuade, entertain, or inform.
    There is focus on oral language skills through informal presentations, in-class response
    and discussion, improvisation, and formal speeches.

    Instructional practices are guided by Common Core Standards for reading, writing and
    speaking and include Interdisciplinary units and Problem Solving Tasks in both the
    language arts and social studies curriculum including literature, oral reports, and written
    assignments in which students share their writing in group discussions, working both
    with partners and in small cooperative groups.
