SEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS AND PARENTS

THE WEEK of APRIL 14th in ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS:

This week students will peer edit and complete their persuasive speech/essay. They will present their speeches in class. This essay will prepare students for the Modern Woodmen speech competition that we will be participating in. They will begin working on this contest this week after turning in their Persuasive Essay. There will be a letter going home with details about the contest and students will also receive a small brochure with information about the contest.

Persuasive Essay Final Draft Due: Tuesday, April 15th


There will be an Independent Novel Project this semester. It will be assigned this week, after Kansas State Assessments. Students will be required to read one book outside of class and complete a book-report type project over their book.
