Write to be Understood.

  • The writing program is structured so that students will gain skills and increased confidence in their ability to write clearly and competently for a variety of audiences and purposes. Seventh grade writers will explore fiction, non-fiction, and poetic genres to explain to, persuade, or inform readers; to express feelings; and to perform practical tasks. In addition, students will learn to use technology to facilitate the writing process and to publish their work.

    In any given year, students may write the following:

    • Literary responses
    • Literary essays
    • Letters
    • Journals
    • Poetry
    • Research papers
