Literacy 7 (Periods 1-2)

Our first READING WORKSHOP UNIT focuses on "reading with agency and independence" as well "developing analytical reading practices across genres".  Students will work with mentor texts (short stories, poetry) to develop their inferencing skills, their ability to recognize allusions, their deeper thinking about character, their ability to analyze theme development across text, and their writing about reading.

UNIT will tackle realistic fiction focusing on symbolism and syntax. We will imagine everyday moments as a springboard to developing characters' motivation and struggles. During our study we will also focus on word choice and sentence structure.
