English Department

 

6th grade English

6th grade English is a forum for students to explore and understand the past present and future through literature, vocabulary development, and writing. Through their readings of both fiction and non-fictions texts, students will broaden, relate to and share each other's perspectives. Their voices will not only be heard through discussion, but through their writing as well. Through encouragement, support, guidance, hard work, and fun, English is designed to help our students become more thoughtful and critical readers and more deliberate and skilled writers. Finally, we will look at literature and writing from a Christian perspective and discover what lessons God is teaching us daily.

 

7th grade English

7th grade English focuses on improving students’ language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) through the study of short stories, poetry, novels, and drama. Students will develop their skills through close reading, discussions, essays and other written work, vocabulary assignments, class presentations, and creative projects. Students are challenged to interpret all reading from a Christian perspective.
