- Grade 7
Year-long; 7th Grade
Requires placement score based on rubric.
This course is designed for students who have consistently demonstrated strong verbal ability as well as personal interest and excellent achievement in language arts during their elementary school years. Students in this class are expected to read and analyze material at least two years above grade level, possess large vocabularies, write willingly and well in a variety of genres and demonstrate good organization skills. Review and re-teaching will be limited to selected areas so students are expected to demonstrate mastery of all information and skills covered in previous years. The same 7th grade curricular benchmarks and indicators will be taught following a more rigorous pace and using more challenging activities and resources. A student meeting the established placement criteria on the rubric may enroll in the Advanced Language Arts class.
