7th Grade Language Arts

This year in English Language Arts we will explore various texts and literary genres, including short stories, poems, nonfiction articles, a teleplay, and excerpts from acclaimed novels. Some of our academic foci are annotation, literary interpretation, expository writing, argumentative writing, narrative writing, and verbal English proficiency. While this is a grade-level course, it is rigorous and designed to ensure students are prepared for 8th grade Literature and Composition, as well as cross-curricular writing assignments.

As your teacher, it is my job to support your academic curiosity and intellectual risk-taking; WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER! If ever there exist questions or confusions regarding assignments, grades, and the like, please do not hesitate to contact me at jamiller@nmusd.us or make an appointment before or after school.

I look forward to a productive and rewarding school year!

Writer's workshop

In this class we will support students’ advancement of literacy by focusing on a foundational understanding of the English language, vocabulary development, reading comprehension, fluidity of reading, annotation abilities, and coherence of ideas and arguments in formal and informal essays. Writer's Workshop is designed to promote literacy in all subjects, utilizing a scaffolded approach in order to ensure student success in all classes. Maintaining an emphasis on writing skills and individual progress, this course will further develop each student’s growth as they become confident writers.

It is my hope, as your teacher, not only to support your reading and writing skills, but also to inspire you to find the joy in written communication. Reading shows us new worlds, helps us see situations from different perspectives, and contributes to our overall success in life. Similarly, writing helps us process our ideas, feelings, and opinions with coherence and eloquence. I am absolutely thrilled to be taking this journey with you!
