7th Grade Literature
© 2019 by M Johnson. Ontario Middle School

Welcome

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. “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” – J.K. Rowling Please check this site weekly to obtain further resources which will assist our classroom study. Mrs. Johnson
