7th Grade Literature

Welcome

Mrs. Johnson

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.”  Stephen King Please check this site weekly to obtain further resources which will assist our classroom study.

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:

Assignments

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 worksheets. 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.

AR

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).

Literary Elements/Greek

Mythology/Greek Drama/Oral

Tradition

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 basis. These links will only be available while we are currently working with those topics. Other topics will replace them as we continue thru the year.

State ELA Standards

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.

Contact

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.

HONORS Literature Class

The honors literature class will have many of their assignments posted on Google Classroom as well. Students will be expected to use this online site on a daily basis in order to receive class assignments, resources, and for general messages. Students will go to classroom.google.com  and click Sign In. Use your Google account (school login). Honors students should have received an invitation from me to join or they may use the class code (See or text me).

Extra-credit

There is not a link on the navigation bar for the posting of extra-credit assignments; however, extra-credit assignments will be made available thru this site for those students and parents who are reading the contents on a regular basis.  Extra-credit points will be available in a number of different postings that will be available throughout the school year online. It will be important for students to check the various web pages in an effort to locate those postings.

Class Supplies

The list is short and fairly simple. Click on the “More Info” box to print a copy of the complete list.
