Welcome to Pd. 4 ENGLISH 7/8

  • This year, in English 7/8, we are focusing on improving our vocabulary and writing abilities.  We are practicing TDA's weekly and are currently working on recognizing figurative language within texts.  We work on improving our comprehension, analyzing passages, locating clues within our readings, and responding appropriately to writing prompts.  We are getting pretty good at starting our writing prompts by re-wording the initial question and then using examples to support our response.  We use the R.A.C.E.S writing strategy to help us:

    R (Restate the Question)

    A (Answer the Question)

    C (Cite the Evidence)

    E (Explain the Answer)

    S (Summarize the Information)
