7th Grade Literature - Central Ideas in Non Fiction

In October, we will begin reading Warriors Don't Cry to try to help us identify central ideas.  The Catholic Social Teaching this month is Call to Family, Community and Participation.  We will be looking for this teaching as well in the novel.  In addition to reading this memoir, I am asking all 7th graders to read an additional biography or autobiography on their own outside of class.  This will serve as our Book Talk book.  I will be attaching the grading rubric for this presentation due November 6th as soon as we complete this month's Book Talk.

6th Grade Fictional Narrative

Now that we have covered how to write a paragraph (in great depth), we will be turning our focus to something a little more fun.  We will be writing a fictional narrative in October.  Students who do not necessarily like to write will enjoy this unit as they get to become an author of whatever story they can imagine.  We will spend a lot of time focusing on word choice and details.  Be prepared to proof read this one.  

8th Grade English Narrative Unit

In October we will be working on a Narrative Unit.  This unit will have many different aspects, but it should serve as a good trip down memory lane for our 8th graders.  They will spend time recalling events from their childhood as well as project where they think they will be ten years from now.  I will need the parents help here, as there will be an assignment for you too.  More information on that will follow as we get further into the unit.
