• Welcome to Sharon Hill's 7th Grade English Language Arts bookworm Ms. Basile

            Our daily English Language Arts block is comprised of both interactive and independent reading strategies, as well as analysis of literary elements, vocabulary, grammar, and writing.  Your child will be an active participnt in a collaborative reading and writing workshop environment. How this will look during our first marking period will be much different since we will be learning on-line.  However, we will navigate these changes together as we discover what works best for each child. I want to emphasize that these times will involve a learning curve for all of us--we are all active learners, and as such, I assure you that we will be flexible in terms of synchronous (real-time interaction) and asynchronous (without real-time interaction) learning activities.

           During each class block, students will participate in a variety of activities and assessments that will account for their quarterly grades in the following manner: 

    •  75% Assessments (grammar and vocabulary quizzes, selection quizzes, writing assignments)
    • 15% Classwork (reading and writing assignments, grammar and vocabulary activities)

    • 10% Homework (on as-needed basis, independent practice in the form of:  selection readings & written responses, grammar and vocabulary practice)
