Pre-AP 7th Grade
English Language Arts
ELA is all about developing strong communication and literacy skills. Pre-AP students will leave the 7th grade with advanced READING, WRITING, SPEAKING, and LISTENING habits - the kinds of skills that will prepare students to participate in Advanced Placement high school classes and college-level courses in the years to come. Most importantly, these skills will equip students to engage with challenging ideas and a changing world in thoughtful and compassionate ways.

Each quarter of the school year will have a different reading and writing focus:

Quarter 3:

Chains

Additionally, Pre-AP students MUST demonstrate the academic ability, effort, and integrity worthy of special distinction. Students must both earn their way into the course and work diligently and honestly to remain there. Any student will lose the privilege to participate in Pre-AP ELA if one or more of the following occurs:

*Student earns an “F” in any subject during any quarter of the school year.

*Student’s average drops below B- during two or more quarters of the school year in any
subject.

* Student demonstrates a pattern of academic dishonesty (plagiarism, cheating, etc.).
