3rdÂ hour:Â 7thÂ grade Language and Literature
Language and Literature covers three areas of study in IB which we will be working on all year:
- Â Content
- Â Â Organization
- Â Â Language and Style
We will be studying various short stories, novels, drama, poetry, and non-fiction, most of which will be coming from their textbook. Â We will also be working on writing throughout the year.Â Students will have at least one weekly writing assignment (WWA), which will deal with their personal experiences dealing with a theme, conflict, or idea coming from the literature we are currently studying.Â Â They willÂ also be working on expository writing as well.Â Â We will study the grammar and mechanics largely through the studentâ€™s own writing and DLPs (Daily Language Practice).
I am enjoying my first year at CIS thoroughly.Â If you have questions, concerns, or just want to chat, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
