As we end Quarter 3 and enter Quarter 4, 7th grade finds themselves in the middle of several projects.
1. Students have wrapped up their Argument Essay draft (draft was due April 8), which included an introduction, body paragraphs, a rebuttal paragraph, and conclusion.
We will edit and revise the essay for publication, after break.
2. Students have started experimenting with different forms and styles of poetry. This is a chance for some creative writing.
A total of 11 poems should be done by Thursday, April 14. We will publish the poems throughout the month of April.
3. Students are currently reading When Elephants Fight. Our nonfiction CORE text.
We will wrap up the book in May and a project will be assigned after break.
