7th Grade Reading:

  • We are working on a biography unit.  Each student has chosen to independently research a person who has "beaten the odds."  Together, we are reading a biography on Jackie Robinson.  Within this unit, we are learning the important elements on non-fiction writing in order to better comprehend our reading.

  • Students have a reading log due each Monday.  They are required to read at least 100 minutes throughout the week outside of class and include a summary of what they read.
