MYP Year 2 Language and Literature

3rd hour:  7th grade Language and Literature

Language and Literature covers three areas of study in IB which we will be working on all year:

  •   Content
  •   Organization
  •   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.  We will also be working on writing throughout the year.  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.   They will also be working on expository writing as well.  We will study the grammar and mechanics largely through the student’s own writing and DLPs (Daily Language Practice).

I am enjoying my first year at CIS thoroughly.  If you have questions, concerns, or just want to chat, please feel free to contact me at
