Study Skills and Writing

Study Skills and Writing Workshop
with Ms. Ciaravino

A big THANK YOU for all the generosity during Teacher Appreciation week. From chocolate to sandwiches, from candles to gift cards, I deeply appreciate your gestures. 

We're tying up the year, but the seventh grade will continue to have Study Skills in Fall of 2017. That means that we will keep working on CHSEE skills. We have already covered (and continue to study) the Reading Comprehension, Word Study, and Writing portions of the CHSEE. As the year draws to a close, we'll begin work on the Grammar section of the test. That section has a number of sub-categories: Punctuation and Capitalization; Usage; Sentence Sense. We will carry into September with this section. 

As part of our high school preparation, we are also learning about irony. In the Fall, we will emphasize symbolism and work on poetry analysis.
