    Welcome to Seventh and Eighth Grade Language Arts
     
    The seventh and eighth grade Language Arts curriculums are aligned with the New Jersey State Standards. The overall goal for both grade levels is to prepare students with the necessary skills needed to be successful in middle school, high school, college and/or whatever career path they should chose. This year in Language Arts, students will be reading fiction and non-fiction material, creating open-ended questions, increasing vocabulary knowledge, conducting research using the Guided Inquiry method, increasing speaking and listening skills, and producing various writing formats. Students will become independent learners and critical thinkers as they journey through the year and prepare themselves for their next step in the educational process. 
     
    Grades will be weighted as the following:
    Tests=30%
    Quizzes=25%
    Writing Assignments=30%
    Classwork=5%
    Homework=10% 
     
    The best way to reach me is through email - sousa@alexandriaschools.org or call and leave a message at extension 3008.
     
    I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year with the students.
     
    Mrs. Sousa
