Seventh graders at Moses Brown read a variety of poetry, short stories, and novels to deeply consider their collective past and present and the role they play as engaged citizens. Students bring their passion for fairness and justice to conversations about prejudice and discrimination which they explore through fiction, non-fiction, and contemporary news articles. With engaging literature and productive, respectful critique sessions, at Moses Brown we instill kids with a passion for the English language and a love of books.
Students grow their reading skills by practicing active reading and engaging with the text through journal reflection and class discussion. Seventh grade English classrooms are lively, helping students engage personally and as part of a community of learners. Each unit of study includes writing projects to support analytical essay writing as well as more creative writing like poetry and monologues.
English class isn’t just reading and writing, however. We make text come alive with immersive projects that extend what we’ve gleaned from the page, and these frequently connect with studies in other classes.Inquire
