Course Code: ENGLISH-7

The study of English Language Arts at the seventh grade integrates reading, writing, speaking, listening and language standards. Students will reinforce and continue the skills and concepts they learned in sixth grade English. They will focus on becoming critical readers, writers, and thinkers through a holistic and thematic approach to understanding and using the English language. This approach integrates literature, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar. In addition, all students will be expected to take the state mandated written language assessment in February and Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) test at the end of the school year in April. This course is specifically designed with appropriate adaptations to the content, methodology, delivery and/or design that address the student’s unique needs.
