English Language Arts in
grade seven will be challenging but rewarding. Teachers will
work to create a classroom which enhances academic learning,
self-esteem, respect, and the essential skills students will
need in the future. Students will be responsible for writing
assignments, oral presentations, cooperative learning
activities, various research assignments, and homework.
Vocabulary tests are given on a weekly basis. Literature
tests are usually given at the end of a unit or at selected
intervals in longer works. Extra help is available, and we
encourage all students to ask for assistance.

In Grade 7, instructional time will focus on four
critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying
proportional relationships, (2) developing understanding of
operations with rational numbers and working with
expressions and linear equations, (3) solving problems
involving scale drawings and informal geometric
constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional
shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and
volume, and (4) drawing inferences about populations based
Each student is expected to perform to the best of
his/her ability. Students should come to class every day
prepared with their binder, agenda, pencils and completed
homework assignments. As educators we are encouraging
students to become independent learners who can reason
through their answers. Thus, homework is a very large part
of math and is assigned on a regular basis. Assignments
should be done neatly and have all work shown. We will also
be gauging our teaching on the development of skills, thus
both formative and summative assessments will be used.
Larger summative assessments will be given after every unit,
and shorter quizzes will be given on a more frequent basis.
The math team members encourage anyone having difficulty to
see them for extra help or visit the Math Lab which is open
on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday after school.

In Grade 7 Science students will pursue in-depth study of
the following three topics throughout the school year: (1)
Populations and Ecosystems, (2) Earth's History, and (3)
Chemical Interactions. While learning valuable content,
students will also work on vital science process skills,
such as observing, inferring, predicting, and writing
Collaborative learning experiences are an important part
of science class. Students frequently work in small groups
to reinforce concepts using critical thinking skills. The
students could share their results in a lab report, orally,
written with conclusions or questions, depending on the
lesson. Collaborative inquiry skills help to lessen anxiety,
and more importantly give each child the opportunity to gain
a deeper understanding of the science content.

The social studies curriculum for 7th grade will involve
the areas of study detailed in the Massachusetts Social
Studies Curriculum Frameworks. They are Ancient Man,
Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China, Greece, Israel, and Rome.
These topics will include the development of culture,
civilization, and the relationship between our own
civilization and those long passed into history. Beyond the
mere transfer of facts and stories, our goal in 7th Grade
Social Studies is to teach our students how to be discerning
researchers. We will use hands-on and engaging techniques.
We will examine a myriad of Primary and Secondary sources
both in print and online, in and out of the textbook. Our
hope is that 7th graders come away from this year with a
hunger to dig deeper and think like historians and
archeologists not just memorize a bunch of dates and place
