We are currently working on:

E.L.A.

Throughout this unit, students build their ability to read closely and to analyze textual evidence in writing. This unit also introduces important discussion protocols that help students collaborate effectively during discussions.

Students will:

  •  determine the central ideas of a literary text. (RL.7.2)
  •  analyze how an author develops and contrasts the points of view of characters in a literary text. (RL.7.6)
  • effectively engage in discussions with diverse partners about seventh-grade topics, texts, and issues. (SL.7.1)

Mathematics:

In Grade 6, students formed a conceptual understanding of integers through the use of the number line, absolute value, and opposites and extended their understanding to include the ordering and comparing of rational numbers. This module uses the Integer Game: a card game that creates a conceptual understanding of integer operations and serves as a powerful mental model students can rely on during the module.  Students build on their understanding of rational numbers to add, subtract, multiply, and divide signed numbers. Previous work in computing the sums, differences, products, and quotients of fractions serves as a significant foundation.

 

Social Studies:

7.2 COLONIAL DEVELOPMENTS: European exploration of the New World resulted in various interactions with Native Americans and in colonization. The American colonies were established for a variety of reasons, and developed differently based on economic, social, and geographic factors. Colonial America had a variety of social structures under which not all people were treated equally. (Standards: 1, 2, 3, 4; Themes: MOV, GEO, ECO, EXCH)

 

 

My major goals for all students.  They will:
  •  Develop skills in written and oral expression by relating historical events to our ever changing world.
  • Learn to work cooperatively and take mentoring roles that will help them in life.

  • Stay focused on tasks, learn to plan long-range and be successful in goal setting.

  • Speak in front of groups with confidence and style.
