Writing Standard 6

Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and link to and cite sources as well as to interact and collaborate with others, including linking to and citing sources.
  • 7th grade poetry
    The 7th grade poetry unit gives an in depth approach to poetry involving the four strands within the core. I've included worksheets, rubrics, and answers keys where applicable. I have also used literature examples from the core.
  • Know Your Literature Genres
    The various genres and subgenres are presented to the students using a video and presentation, and use of examples of several fiction, non-fiction, and poetry books. Then, using a mixed-genre set of books, and the notes they took during the presentation, students will identify the genres represented in each set.

    After students finish reading a book independently, they will use what they learned from the presentation to identify the book's genre in their book reviews for their ELA teacher.
