Reading Overview

  • Seventh grade regular reading classes focus on the importance of becoming strong, independent readers.  We use the Pearson Prentice Hall Literature Common Core Text, but frequently supplement with novels and other complex texts. 

     

    Seventh grade advanced classes- 

    Summer Reading – Required book – Alabama Moon by Watt Key

    Class book (read together during the year) The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

    Accelerated Reader - This is an incentives-based program! Prizes are awarded as students earn AR points. Students will be required to read a minimum of one book each nine weeks.  They will complete a short in-class project about the book at the end of the nine weeks.  Students will be given time to read in class each day.  Prizes are awarded as students earn AR points.  This is a fun competition!

    We frequently use Scope Magazine in class.
