Welcome to Advanced Language Arts at the Owasso Seventh Grade Center.
Welcome to Advanced Language Arts at the Owasso Seventh Grade Center. Mine is a class of application! No more memorizing lists of literary terms and irrelevant spelling words....now is the time for students to start applying what they learn!
This year we do some work in the textbook but much of our work will be in novels and in constructing well-defined writing assignments. Again, my emphasis is taking what students learn from reading published authors, to creating original writings with the same great literary characteristics. Our focus will be on readiness for high school, college, and, ultimately, a career.
We talk a lot, we laugh a lot, and we learn a lot. Though I expect a lot from the students, they can expect a lot from me.
A basic "skeleton" of my weekly lesson plans can be found on the "Lesson Plans" page. My plans change daily based on the progress we make in class so published plans are "fluid". I also provide a daily agenda which can be accessed by clicking on the "Google Classroom" tab and icon. If students are unable to be in class, this is an easy way to see what we did and stay current with work. My e-mail address is also provided on this site and can be very helpful in maintaining open communication between home and school.
Thank you for the opportunity I will have to spend with your child this year!
