Seventh grade literature is an opportunity for
students to explore in greater depth various genres
of literature. This course will hopefully encourage
students to appreciate the joy of reading.
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials,
no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent.
What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book
around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”

Our Class Website
Students and parents:
Please take advantage of this website. Much
of what we will cover in class is presented
thru various pages connected to this website.
We will be using the content in the classroom
and hope that you will refer to the site
whenever you need further assistance.
The navigation bar at the top of each page
will link to the following web pages:
The Assignment web page is one link that
should be checked on a weekly basis. This
page will provide the various assignments
that will be covered thru the week. Links will
also be provided for students to view or print
Should a student be absent, classwork and
homework will be available for students to
view and print. Students could easily print
this page and place it in their agendas rather
than writing in the weekly assignments.
The Accelerated Reader program is used to
measure students’ reading comprehension.
You will find the current nine-week reading
goals and requirements posted on this page
along with the various links for the AR
program. Important deadlines are also
posted and updated (if needed).
For the first nine-weeks, students will be
working with the above listed topics. There is
a dedicated web page for each of these
topics. Students will find classroom
worksheets listed, additional resource links,
as well as possible extra-credit assignments.
Be sure to view these pages on a regular
These links will only be available while we are
currently working with those topics. Other
topics will replace them as we continue thru
Our focus for the year is for students to be
familiar with each of the state standards in
the area of reading. More importantly,
students will be able to understand what the
various standards mean and allow to apply
the standards to their reading.
By becoming more familiar with the
standards, students will be better equipped
to comprehend their state assessments and
achieve a proficient score.
I have a web page designated for the various
methods of contacting me with your
concerns. Besides email and phone,
students and parents can also use the
Remind.com site to text. I will be using this
site as a means of simply “reminding” my
students of important upcoming tasks or
activities. Sign-up will take place the first
week of school. Be sure to use the correct
code for the class you wish to be a member.
