Welcome to Jr. High Language Arts and 7th-grade Religion

with Ms. Arvizu

Our main goal this year is to foster student’s ability to write well and communicate effectively while providing a foundation for high school and future career opportunities. We will have a great time learning how to strengthen our verbal skills and expand our writing with detail, supporting sentences to help our readers better understand your topic of writing. In addition, we will incorporate life lessons that encompass moral teachings to both ELA and Religion. We will cover community service (i.e. giving back to families, our parish, local, national and global) in response to the Gospel call. Lastly, we will demonstrate the importance of our faith in the times we currently live in.

Curriculum:

Voyage in English: 7th-grade level writing, grammar, usage, mechanics, speech, and listening, and citing reference; critical thinking skills
