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.

The man who never reads lives only one.” – George

right book.” – J.K. Rowling

Our Class Website
Students and parents: Please take
advantage of this website. Much of what
we will cover in class is presented through
the various pages connected to this
website. Students will also use their
Google Classroom to receive and post
various assignments. The navigation bar
at the top of each page will link to the
following web pages:
AR and I-Ready
The AR (Accelerated Reader) program is
used to measure students’ reading
comprehension. Important deadlines will
be posted and updated throughout the
school year. I-Ready diagnostic testing will
be used to measure students’ reading
levels and comprehension skills.
Students who need more assistance with
reading comprehension may be asked to add
this online program to their independent
reading. Passages are selected to meet the
student’s reading levels and progress as the
student continues to improve.
The Weekly Assignments box at the top
right of this page should be checked on a
weekly basis. Assignments will be posted
on a weekly basis along with due dates.
Links will also be provided for students to
view or print worksheets. Should a
student be absent, classwork and
homework will be available for students
to view and print.
Students will be creating a glossary of
literary terms in their notebooks.
These are the terms that they will
need to know throughout our
discussions and assignments.
There are several methods to contact
me should you have any questions.
