In all created things discern the providence and wisdom of God, and in all things give Him thanks. -St. Teresa of Avila

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Our Class mission is for all of us to experience personal growth in our very own special talents of reading and writing. This mission will be fulfilled by aligning with the mission of the Diocese of St. Petersburg as stated below:

Language Arts Mission Statement

As a Catholic school, in the Diocese of St. Petersburg, our faith, traditions, and values are at the core of our curriculum, and as such, our teaching should reflect our Catholic identity.  In the Language Arts, we have adapted the Florida Sunshine State Standards; additionally, we are called to actively integrate Catholic Social Teachings into our reading, writing, recitation, and discussion. 

The 7th grade language arts curriculum has six strands (areas) of focus through which our faith will be integrated:

1. Reading process: Fluency, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension.

2. Literary Analysis: Fiction and non-fiction.

3. Writing process: Pre-Writing, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.

4. Writing Applications: Creative, Informative, and Persuasive.

5. Communication: Penmanship, listening, and speaking.

6. Information and Media Literacy: Media and technology in the research process

 

"A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read."

Mark Twain

STUDENT SCIENCE CURRICULUM:

The curriculum for each grade level of science is based on the Next Generation Science Standards. This science curriculum is currently adopted by 26 states in our country including Florida. The Diocese of St. Petersburg has further aligned this science curriculum with the appropriate supporting benchmarks in religion, language arts, mathematics, and health. Your student will also receive instruction aligned with Common Core Standards in science literacy to provide rigorous learning that will require your student to use critical thinking skills that will foster independent problem solving skills and make them college and career ready!

AFTER SCHOOL SCIENCE HELP WILL BE OFFERED AFTER SCHOOL ON THURSDAYS FROM 3:30 to 4:10. I will get students from the homework room after my dismissal duty out front.
